Workers’ Compensation
Industrial Accidents


Industrial work is part of the infrastructure of our nation, and it is as important as it can be dangerous. In fact, industrial workers are far more vulnerable to dangerous accidents on the job than people in many other occupations. If you’ve been injured in the course of your position as an industrial worker, seek the legal guidance of an experienced Illinois workers’ compensation attorney today. 


Common Industrial Accidents

If you work in industry, you are vulnerable to any number of dangerous accidents, but some of the most common include:

  • Slip and Falls – Slipping and falling on the job is not only a common industrial accident, but it can also be a surprisingly dangerous one. If the fall is from a height, such as from a ladder, it is even more dangerous. 
  • Accidents Related to Missing Guards – Industry involves heavy, dangerous machinery, and when that machinery lacks the necessary guard mechanisms, employees are put in very dangerous situations. 
  • Repetitive Stress Injuries – Industrial work often requires repetitive motion that can lead to extremely painful and physically limiting repetitive stress injuries. 
  • Overexertion – The heavy lifting common to industrial work can lead to injuries caused by overexertion, such as neck, back, and other spinal cord injuries.
  • Caught In-Betweens – Getting caught in or in between two massive, unyielding forces often leads to life-threatening injuries, and the heavy machinery and equipment common to industrial work is a common cause. 

Obtaining Just Compensation 

Obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled is elemental to your ability to fully recover, but doing so is not always straightforward. The workers’ compensation provider in your case is thoroughly invested in turning a profit, which translates to shaving settlements and payouts by whatever means available. 

After being injured on the job, you’re at your most vulnerable and are likely no match for the insurance company and its highly specialized resources. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney will build your strongest claim – based on carefully gathered evidence – in support of a claim resolution that supports your fullest recovery. 

Protect Your Claim

Your industry accident claim will be unique to you, your job, and your situation, but there are some universal tips every accident victim should follow, including:

  • Don’t wait to obtain the medical care and attention you need. Serious injuries can be slow to reveal themselves, and early diagnosis can greatly improve your prognosis.
  • Follow your medical team’s instructions carefully. This is not only good for your health but also underscores the serious nature of the injuries you’ve sustained. 
  • Work closely with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Workers’ compensation claims are generally quite complicated, and because your health and well-being can hinge on the outcome, it’s in your best interest to have a knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorney on your side.
