It doesn’t matter what type of work you do or where you work, there is always a risk of injuring yourself on the job. In Chicago, Illinois, there are many people who get hurt at their workplace and this comes to us with no surprise. If you are an Illinois worker who has been injured, or if you have gotten sick from doing your job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits or compensation through a third-party liability claim.
Work accidents can cause serious injuries and permanent damage. Some extremely serious work injuries can permanently hinder a person’s ability to get around and continue their daily duties. Unable to perform their previous duties, an injured worker may have too change jobs and earn less money. Factors that affect one’s quality of life such as place of work, relationships with friends and family, and social standing can all be taken away quickly by a work injury.
