A joint injury, such as injuries to one’s knee, shoulder, or elbow, requires time and attention to properly heal and can lead to expensive medical treatment and lost time from work. If you suffered your injury in the normal course of work or as a result of your job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to help cover financial damages.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, we work with people across Chicago and throughout Illinois to maximize workers’ compensation benefits. Our lawyers will work to help you obtain the financial resources you need to deal with your on-the-job accident or joint injury. Our founding attorney, Steven J. Seidman, has been working in injury law for nearly 40 years and has helped countless people get the benefits they need.Knee, Shoulder and Other Joint Injuries
Joint injuries can be suffered suddenly, such as a torn ligament or rotator cuff, while other injuries can be the result of years of slow, degenerative damage. In both cases, when that injury or disability is a result of your work, Illinois’ workers’ compensation laws apply.
If you have been injured, make sure that you have the information you need and the support of a professional who will work to maximize your claim. Our attorney has a proven record of success helping workers get the benefits they are owed, which can include:
- Payment for medical expenses
- Weekly income at up to two-thirds’ your regular pay
- Lump-sum payments and settlements
- Disability payments if your injury prevents you from returning to work
- Payment of future medical expenses
If a joint or soft-tissue injury such as a muscle tear or carpal tunnel syndrome prevents you from doing your job, you should talk to an experienced attorney to protect your right to financial recovery. We can pursue all available avenues for compensation on your behalf.Schedule A Free Consultation
