Industrial Accident Attorneys Chicago

Physical labor, such as construction and other forms of industrial work, are among the most dangerous jobs out there, and industrial accidents are often life-threatening. If you have been injured on the job, you are facing unique challenges ahead, but an experienced industrial accident attorney in Chicago can help.

Industrial Accident Statistics

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shares the latest statistics regarding accidents on the job, including industrial occupations, and the numbers tell a sobering story. Consider the following:

  • There were more than 900,000 nonfatal injuries on the job in 2018, and almost a third of these were related to slipping, tripping, and falling.
  • In 2018, there were more than 235,000 accidents on the job involving contact with objects and equipment that resulted in injuries so severe the victims required time off. 
  • A full 24 percent of all fatal work accidents in 2018 involved motor vehicles, which comes to 1,276 deaths. 
  • In 2018, about 2.5 million workers were injured so badly on the job that emergency room visits were required. 

Accidents on the job happen, they are often very serious, and industrial accidents are some of the most dangerous of all.

Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

If you have been injured on the job, reaching your most complete recovery is critical, and this involves obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled, including:

  • Medical Expenses – The truth about serious injuries is that they often lead to ongoing healthcare needs and to secondary health concerns, which makes addressing the full range of your injuries paramount. If your injuries are serious, your medical costs will follow suit and can include emergency care, surgery, hospitalization, rehab, physical therapy, pain management, prescription medications, and beyond.
  • Lost Earnings – Recovering from a serious injury can take a considerable amount of time, which makes returning to industrial work a problem. While you focus on regaining your health and well-being, you’ll experience lost wages (just when your medical bills are piling up).

The Workers’ Comp Insurance Company

Workers’ compensation insurance is designed to protect both you, as the injured employee, and your employer. The idea is that your damages will be covered (regardless of fault), and your employer can continue running the business without fear that it will come to a grinding halt due to accident-based lawsuits. The idea is fairly solid, but the insurance company is profit-based, which means it is motivated to keep your settlement as low as possible. Working closely with an experienced industrial accident attorney is in your best interest.
