How Much Is My Workers' Compensation Case Worth?

That is probably the most frequently asked question we hear from new Workers' Compensation clients when we first meet with them in our office.  It is a fair and reasonable inquiry.  Probably, 95 times out of 100, the most honest and intelligent answer we can give at that time is, "I don't know, yet." 

Construction Safety Day highlights the real dangers facing workers

Most people might not realize it, but today is actually the 7th annual Construction Safety Day, an initiative sponsored by the Governor's Industrial Safety and Health Advisory Board in Washington state.

Safe driving urged during National Work Zone Awareness Week

There are perhaps no more dangerous occupations within the construction industry than those associated with road construction. On a daily basis, these men and women have to not only worry about traditional worksite hazards (falling objects, dangerous machinery, deep trenches, etc.), but also the traffic zooming by them.

Employers urged to remember severe weather safety

Even though the temperature is still unseasonably cold and snow is still piled high throughout the streets of Chicago, it's important to remember that spring is right around the corner.

Proposed law would deny work comp for non-work crashes

This is not to say that these types of work injuries aren't incredibly debilitating or capable of causing an injured worker considerable problems, rather it's simply a recognition of just how truly horrific and life-altering industrial accidents can be.

BLS report shows just how dangerous U.S. workplaces can be

The unfortunate reality is that the number of fatal workplace injuries here in the U.S. remains unacceptably high despite advancements in work safety technology, greater enforcement efforts by state and federal agencies, and a greater awareness on the part of employers and employees.

Illinois State University sees major drop in workplace injuries

Right now, college students throughout Illinois are busy preparing for the start of the fall semester. However, these college students aren't the only busy ones, as staff at these colleges and universities are busy preparing their campuses for the sudden influx of students and taking steps to ensure that the academic year proceeds as smoothly -- and injury free -- as possible.

The toll of slips, trips and falls on the U.S. workforce

The unfortunate reality is that most people think that work injuries simply couldn't happen to them. They think that they are reserved solely for those men and women who make their living in inherently dangerous occupations, perhaps using heavy machinery or being exposed to hazardous materials.
