Many Illinois jobs are inherently dangerous, such as construction or railroad work, as well as many times of factory jobs and public service duties. People employed in these industries are at risk for workplace injuries. However, it is one thing for a complete mishap to occur and quite another for an employer's negligence to cause a worker to suffer injury.
The fact is that any worker, even those whose jobs are considered low risk, may suffer injury on the job. Some injuries develop over time, such as repetitive stress injuries. It is critical that all workers know where to seek support in the aftermaths of workplace accidents.
Some workers mistakenly believe that insurance companies and adjusters will help them obtain the compensation to which they may be entitled following a workplace accident. However, insurance companies often try to deny or minimize payments to protect their own interests. This is why it is always best to rely on experienced legal representation to help you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve for the suffering you have endured.
