Mokena Workers’ Comp Lawyer

Being injured on the job can leave you facing physical, financial, and emotional losses that are not easy to overcome. While workers’ compensation is intended to cover your losses, obtaining just compensation within this system can be a serious challenge. Fortunately, an experienced Mokena workers’ comp lawyer can help guide your claim to its most beneficial resolution. 

Common Workers’ Compensation Claims

When you think about accidents on the job, you likely think about construction, factory, and industrial work, which are closely associated with dangerous accidents on site. Injuries related to work, however, go beyond the dramatic injuries that are commonly linked to this kind of physical work. There are also injuries related to lifting, slipping and falling, and repetitive motion that even office workers are susceptible to. In other words, workplace injuries can happen anywhere, and they are often quite serious. Some of the most serious workers’ compensation claims, however, are related to heavy physical labor, including injuries such as the following:

Seeking Benefits

You’ve been injured at work, and your journey toward recovery may be very difficult. One of the most important factors involved, however, is obtaining just compensation that covers your damages in their entirety, including your medical costs and your lost earnings. While your employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover your losses, the workers’ compensation insurance provider is a for-profit enterprise that is very invested in bolstering those profits. 

Ultimately, this means that even though you’re injured and vulnerable, advocating for your just compensation and protecting your claim are both musts. Steps you can take to help protect your health and your claim include:

  • Seeking immediate medical attention
  • Notifying your employer and/or supervisor as soon after you are injured as possible
  • Carefully adhering to the medical instructions provided by your doctor
  • Consulting with a dedicated workers’ compensation lawyer (who will get to work advocating for your just compensation) as soon after your injury-causing accident as possible

OSHA Weighs In

OSHA shares some of the most common safety violations on the job (that lead to dangerous accidents), including:

  • Inadequate fall protection and fall-protection training (on construction sites)
  • inadequate hazard communication, respiratory protection, control of hazardous energy, eye and face protection, and machine guarding 
  • Failure to follow scaffolding requirements and/or to comply with ladder safety requirements
  • Unsafe use of powered industrial trucks

In 2019 alone, more than 5,300 workers were killed on the job, and 20 percent of these fatalities happened in the construction industry.
