Let us be your guide through the workers' compensation system

The manufacturing industry includes many different types of factories, mills and plants. Illinois manufacturers provide many necessary goods and products while also employing a great number of people, but they can also be dangerous. Workers need proper safety equipment to prevent the occurrence of serious work-related accidents, which often require workers' compensation benefits for recovery.

When adequate safety protocols are absent, workers are unnecessarily put in harm's way. Employer negligence can take many forms, including overlooking defective machinery, scrimping on safety gear or failing to properly train workers. The stakes are high in manufacturing, and there is no room for employer carelessness when work-related injuries are often severe. Some of the more serious injuries include:

  • Brain and head injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Death

Unfortunately, some employers will go to great lengths to avoid taking responsibility for such actions. While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration -- OSHA -- will usually perform an investigation after an accident that results in injury. Since employer negligence can take many forms, it is also important to have a personal advocate check out the scene as well.

Workers' compensation benefits are an essential aspect of recovery for Illinois workers, most of whom simply want to get better so that they can return to work. By providing necessary medical care and compensation for lost wages, these benefits can help victims focus more fully on their recovery. Navigating the world of workers' compensation can be confusing, though. We understand just how stressful the time after an accident can be, and are proud of the dedicated service our firm provides to victims of workplace accidents.
