Chicago, Illinois Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Workplace injuries strike without warning. No one climbs out of bed in the morning and hurries dutifully to their job site with the expectation that they’ll be hurt while there.

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.

Common Types of Workers’ Compensation Injuries in Chicago

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:

  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Carpal tunnel damage
  • Electrocution
  • Tripping injuries
  • Slip and falls
  • Falling from a tall height
  • Being struck by an object
  • Falling tools or equipment
  • Ladder injuries
  • Crushing injuries
  • Machine entanglement
  • Knee injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Burns, fires, and explosions
  • Toxic chemical exposure
  • Assault and battery
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Caught-in/between injuries
  • “Walking Into” injuries (examples: walking into glass, windows, doors, etc.)
  • Auto accidents involving company cars (or while driving on behalf of the employer)
  • Many more

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.

Most Workplace Injuries Are Preventable

The law puts the burden of safety on employers (rather than employees) for a reason: employers are in a better position to make sure the workplace is safe.

Many companies derive tremendous profits from the hard toil of their laborers, and you have a right to expect that they will keep you safe in return.

The majority of the injuries sustained in Illinois workplaces — whether it’s a corporate office, a factory floor, or a construction site — are the result of preventable negligence.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
