Chicago Injury & Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Illinois Common Workplace Injuries


Chicago Work Injury Lawyers

While some environments, such as construction sites and warehouses, are often associated with Will County common workplace injuries, it is important to remember that even an office can be a risky place for employees. Here in Illinois, the workers’ compensation program is designed to provide you with monetary assistance in the event of a job-related injury or illness.

Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses

Our work injury lawyers here at Strom & Associates know that not every job-related injury or illness is obvious. Most injuries from a construction accident or a work-related car accident such as broken bones, brain injury or paralysis, are fairly easy to attribute to the event. However, other injuries may be more difficult to connect to the workplace for the fact that it can take quite a while for them to surface. These include the following:

  • Lifting injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Injuries requiring surgery – injuries connected to repetitive stress like carpal tunnel or injuries that were minor at the time they were incurred and then developed into a more serious condition.
  • Occupational illness or disease – illnesses like asbestosis, cancer and respiratory diseases can occur decades after the employee was exposed to a dangerous substance.
  • Emotional or mental illness – can be attributed to the witnessing of a traumatic event in the workplace or through other work-related factors.

To make sure you have a strong case for workers’ compensation benefits, our staff will conduct a thorough investigation into your illness or injury. This may include collecting medical evidence, talking to co-workers and finding expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.

Your Best Interests

Many workplace injuries can have serious consequences that may leave you unable to return to work for months or years. In some cases, the injury or illness may be so severe that you are left permanently disabled. Our workplace injury attorneys here at Strom & Associates always keep your best interests in mind, focusing on what you need now and in the future.

Client Testimonials

Hope your weekend was relaxing. Donald and I wanted to take the time to say thank-you for the great job you did for us on Friday. We weren't sure what to expect, but you put us both at ease and it proved to be an insightful learning experience. I believe there are times that we are so busy with our day to day responsibilities and often forget to remember the simple words of appreciation. Friday reminded me that we have a terrific lawyer in our corner and that has taken some of the load off.
Much Thanks & Appreciation, - Donald & Robin
