An industrial accident or other on-the-job accident can leave you seriously and permanently injured. Workers who have experienced a crush injury or other work injury have rights under Illinois workers’ compensation laws and other laws that govern the filing of a personal injury lawsuit.
If you have suffered a crush injury in the workplace, turn to a lawyer at Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP. We have years of experience representing the interests of injured workers in the Greater Chicago, Illinois, area, including Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, and Will County. Our reputation for success and zealous representation of clients’ rights is supported by the fact that we have obtained numerous verdicts and settlements that have provided compensation for the injuries and losses our clients have suffered.Life After The Accident
Regardless of the situation, a crush injury may alter your life. The injuries may require extensive surgery to regain some of your mobility. You may be left with a permanent disability. Crush injuries may cause chronic pain and nerve damage, especially when resulting from the following types of situations:
- A limb caught in a machine
- Machinery rolling over a foot
- An object falling or dropped on a hand
Part of our investigation into the situation that caused your work injury will include examining if any Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) violations contributed to the accident. It is important that this aspect of the case be examined to further show employer negligence or employer responsibility for the accident that caused your injury.
Contact a lawyer on our legal team at Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, if you or a family member has suffered a crush injury, amputation, or other job site or work injury. We offer a free consultation, including evenings and weekends by appointment. If your injuries prevent travel to our offices, an attorney can meet with you at your hospital or home.
