Types of Workers’ Compensation Cases Our Attorneys Handle

Common Chicago Work Accidents & Injuries

There are many types of worker injuries that can warrant a workers’ compensation claim, but there are certain injuries that are more common than others. Common injuries will vary by industry and profession. However, some common injuries include:

  • Shoulder Injuries

  • Sprains & Strains

  • Back Injuries

  • Fractures

  • Broken Bones

  • Knee Injuries

  • Torn Ligaments

  • Lacerations

  • Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)

  • Arthritis

  • Neck Injuries

  • Headaches & Eye Strain

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

In addition to these injuries, there are many other minor to critical injuries that could make you eligible for compensation. Many of the injuries that workers are likely to suffer from are referred to as repetitive trauma injuries, which result from repeating the same task over time. Stress-related injuries are also possible, such as heart attacks, strokes, and psychological trauma. These types of injuries are more challenging to prove in workers’ compensation cases, but a reputable workers’ compensation attorney may be able to help recover compensation in any case.

Benefits You Can Seek with the Help of a Reputable Workers’ Comp Lawyer in Chicago

Depending on the type of injury you sustained and the circumstances that caused it, you may be able to seek compensation that will cover employee wages, medical benefits, and any costs of retraining.

Some workers’ comp benefits include:

  • Medical Benefits

  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD)

  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD)

  • Death Benefits

  • Vocational Retraining

  • Lost Limbs

  • Disfigurement

In Illinois, employees can often receive some of their wages while healing, along with total coverage for medical expenses used for treatments and retraining benefits if the employee is required to seek employment at another job.

Permanent Partial Disability is also available to employees who may be unable to work again following serious injuries, ensuring that those employees receive a portion of their wages on a regular basis for the rest of their lives. These benefits will vary depending on the severity of the injury and the costs associated with it. A trusted workers’ comp lawyer in Chicago here at Vasilatos Injury Law can help you get the compensation you deserve.
