Falls risks are common in many job settings, especially where ladders and dangerous pieces of equipment are involved. If you suffer a fall injury while you are working at your job – and while you are working within the scope of your employment – you may be able to bring a claim for workers’ compensation benefits, depending upon your circumstances.
The Chicago workers’ compensation lawyers at Malman Law can help you file your workers’ compensation claim and pursue the benefits that you need in order for you to be made whole again. Give us a call today at (312) 629-0099 or contact us online to learn more about how we can help you file a workers’ compensation claim.
Falls that occur while on the job are just as likely at outdoor construction sites as they are at indoor offices. Falls on the job can lead to extremely serious injuries that may require costly medical treatment, long recovery periods, and missed time from work. Common fall injuries include broken bones, soft tissue injuries, head injuries, and back/neck injuries. In some cases, a forceful fall on a hard surface can even lead to death.
Falls at job sites and other workplaces can be caused by several circumstances. Some of the most common risks associated with falls at offices and other job sites include the following:
If you have been injured because of one of these defects while working at your job, you should speak to a knowledgeable Chicago workers’ compensation attorney as soon as you can.
If you have suffered a serious fall while at your job, you or your attorney may be able to file a claim for benefits. As part of your claim, you may be able to recover benefits for the costs of your related medical treatment, along with a portion of the wages you lost after your fall injury. Later in the process, you may be eligible to obtain benefits for a permanent disability, assuming a doctor provides you with a favorable permanency rating. A knowledgeable Chicago workers’ compensation lawyer can assist you throughout the process of filing a claim and can attend any and all hearings and other legal proceedings with you.
If you were injured in a fall that took place while you were working in the scope of your employment, the legal team at Malman Law can determine your eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits arising out of your accident and injuries.
