Industrial accidents could cause life-changing injuries

Illinois employees of manufacturers typically rely on their employers to provide safe work environments that are free of known hazards. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration expects employers to ensure that all machines are fitted with safeguards to prevent contact with dangerous, moving parts. Furthermore, energy control devices and procedures must be in place to protect workers from unexpected activation that could cause industrial accidents that may lead to amputations or deaths.

Workers' compensation pays benefits regardless of who is at fault

Workers across all industries in Illinois are entitled to claim insurance benefits to help them cope with the financial consequences of a work-related injury. Workers' compensation is a no-fault system that does not typically focus on who was to blame for an injury. Employees are generally barred from suing their employers for a workplace injury, though exceptions are made when evidence suggests an employer's gross negligence caused on-the-job injuries.

Company time and car accidents

For many people, driving is part of their job, in some form or another. Whether a worker experiences a car accident in a company vehicle or in their own vehicle or some other vehicle, the employer often bears liability for the accident, as long as the victim meets the appropriate standards.

Don't let insurance companies lowball your workers' compensation

Injuries from a work\-related accident can cause far more than just physical pain. Many Illinois victims lose out on necessary wages, suffer ongoing mental anguish or are forced to switch careers after a severe injury. Workers' compensation benefits are intended to support injured workers, but that does not stop employers and insurance companies from trying to pay as little as possible.

Construction accidents a fatality risk for some workers

No one imagines sending a loved one off to work and them never coming home, but for one out-of-state family, this was a sad reality. Fatal construction accidents are often the result of lapses in safety that put Illinois workers, not employers, at the most risk. Death benefits through workers' compensation often essential for surviving family members who rely on lost wages compensation.

Suffering shoulder pain from a work injury? We can help

Physical labor can take a serious toll on the body. Whether an Illinois worker is employed on a construction site or in an office, virtually any level of physical activity can lead to a work injury. Shoulder injuries in particular are exceedingly common and, for many, can cause severe and ongoing pain that requires them to take time away from work. If you are suffering from an on-the-job shoulder injury, workers' compensation benefits are likely essential to your recovery.
