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

SINGLE INCIDENT OR SUDDEN WORK 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 WORK INJURIES

These injuries can be the same as the single incident injuries. Only the cause is different. Instead of a single incident, these work 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 OFF-SITE AND ON THE JOB

The first step is to tell your supervisor and file an incident report, regardless of the severity.  Something that seems minor could end up being a major issue a few days later.  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 work injury, call Attorney David N. Rechenberg.  He has guided people through the worker’s compensation system for 20 years. We can assist you in getting a just settlement or award.
