Nevertheless, Chicago workers are hurt every single day. Unfortunately, the system put in place by the State of Illinois is not as helpful as it ought to be.
Workplace injuries are particularly unfair because they happen while you’re working for somebody else’s benefit. The least your employer can do is make sure you’re safe while you earn them money. You work hard, after all, and you are entitled to protection.
Navigating the Illinois Workers’ Compensation system isn’t easy. Your employer and their insurance company will do everything they can to reduce or deny your coverage. They might even blame the injury on you. Don’t accept that.
Most workplace injuries happen because the employers failed to take reasonable steps to secure the workplace, or perhaps because they failed to address safety hazards they should have foreseen.
There are many kinds of Workers’ Comp injuries in Chicago, and the specific type of injury can determine the applicable legal standards and the available outcomes.
Common injuries include:
Additionally, you may be entitled to compensation if you have developed any ongoing health conditions or diseases as a result of your working conditions. These may include cancers, respiratory problems, impaired immune systems, paralysis, or any condition creating a hardship in your life.
Whatever the nature of your injury might be, the Chicago Workers’ Compensation lawyers at Malman Law can help.
