Personal Injury & Workers Compensation Attorneys
Have you been injured at work? If you have your employer, your employer’s insurance company may be required to compensate you for you. You can receive monies for injuries, occurring at work, if you are unable to work. The payments you would receive are known as temporarily totally disabled.
What should you do if you’re injured at work? You should notify your employer immediately. If you were working, but not at your employers address, you may still be considered injured on the job. You will want to make sure you contact your employer and notify them of the injury.
When you’re injured on the job, you are eligible to receive money for your injury. You can receive one single, “lump sum” payment or partial payments.
In a workers compensation claim filed with the Illinois Worker's Compensation Industrial Commission rising out of injuries received at a popular fast food restaurant chain that was sold for over $1 billion, Geraci Arreola and Hernandez and their co-counsel were able to settle the back injury claim for $63,623. This young woman was working on a tomato-slicing machine when the machine caught her hand. Her supervisor told her to keep on working because she needed tomatoes! Thankfully the injuries she received when the machine caught her hand was not a slicing injury, but a twisting injury which course carpal tunnel syndrome, so that she could only work using one hand. The employer and their insurance company not only denied she was injured, but refused to pay medical bills for the carpal tunnel said injury. Another good reason to come to Geraci law for work injuries: Do not count on your employer or their rotten insurance company to take responsibility for an injury at work.
