Below are some work-related injuries that we have seen in our practice. The list does not include every injury, just the most common. If you have any questions, or you have been injured at work.  We look forward to hearing from you.

SINGLE INCIDENT OR SUDDEN INJURIES

These injuries are what most people think of when talking about worker’s compensation issues. A UPS driver lifts a heavy box and pulls a muscle in his back. Someone slips and falls on a slippery floor and lands on their shoulder.

REPETITIVE STRESS INJURIES

These injuries can be the same as the single incident injuries. Only the cause is different. Instead of a single incident, injuries can result from years of repetitive stress.

Whether it happens all at once, or over a period of months or years, we have handled McHenry County worker’s comp cases that involved:

  • rotator cuff tear

  • torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament)

  • torn MCL (medial collateral ligament)

  • torn meniscus

  • back injury, e.g. bulging disk or herniated disc

  • neck injury

  • knee / hip replacement

  • carpal tunnel syndrome

  • hearing loss

  • heart attack / stroke

  • lateral epicondylitis

  • cubital tunnel syndrome

  • tarsal tunnel syndrome

  • ulnar nerve transposition

  • rsd (reflex sympathetic dystrophy)

IF YOU ARE INJURED AT WORK OR ON THE JOB

The first step is to tell your supervisor and file an incident report. Because these injuries happened on the job, you are entitled to compensation for wage loss and rehabilitation.

In order to make sure that you get the Worker’s Comp Benefits you deserve for your injury, call Attorney David N. Rechenberg.  He has guided people through the worker’s compensation system for 18 years. We can assist you in getting a just settlement or award.
