The Reality of Workplace Injuries in Illinois

Workplace injuries in Illinois are more common than you might think and can range from minor incidents to major accidents resulting in severe physical and psychological trauma. Some of the most commonly reported injuries include:

  • Physical Trauma: This category includes injuries resulting from construction accidents, work machinery mishaps, or work travel incidents. These injuries can range from broken bones and sprains to severe back injuries, which can cause chronic pain and limit mobility. These incidents occur due to unsafe working conditions, negligence, or lack of proper safety measures.
  • Loss of Limbs & Amputation: Loss of limb and amputation injuries are some of the most devastating consequences of workplace accidents. Often occurring in high-risk industries such as construction, these injuries can significantly alter the course of a worker’s life, affecting not only their ability to work but also their daily living activities. 
  • Long-Term Consequences: Some workplace injuries, like brain damage, hearing loss, vision loss, and permanent total disability, can have profound and lasting impacts on victims and their families. These injuries can lead to long-term health issues, changes in lifestyle, and significant financial strain due to ongoing medical expenses and loss of income.

No matter the type of your injury, it’s crucial to understand that you have rights and options. Our dedicated team at Saks, Robinson & Rittenberg, Ltd., is here to help you navigate through this challenging time.

Navigating Illinois Workers’ Compensation Laws

Illinois law mandates that employers provide Workers’ Compensation benefits to employees who sustain injuries while performing their job duties. This system exists to protect workers like you, ensuring that you receive appropriate compensation regardless of who was at fault for the accident.

If your injury results in permanent restrictions preventing you from returning to your original job, the employer’s insurance company is required to provide vocational rehabilitation. They must also pay you two-thirds of the wage difference between your old and new job.

The Claims Process: Step-by-Step Guidance

The process of filing a Workers’ Compensation claim may feel overwhelming, especially when you’re already dealing with the aftermath of a workplace injury. That’s where we step in:
