Data from the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows us that there were approximately 2.8 million non-fatal workplace injuries or illnesses during the latest reporting year of data we have available. There are a wide variety of injuries that can happen at work, and no industry is immune from workplace injury incidents. Our Chicago workplace injury lawyers regularly help clients who have sustained the following traumatic injuries:
- Broken and dislocated bones
- Lacerations or puncture wounds
- Severe sprains or strains
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back and spinal cord injuries
- …and more
However, we also know that many workplace injuries, such as cumulative stress injuries, occur over longer periods of time. Similarly, many occupational illnesses occur only after long periods of hazardous exposure in the workplace. This can include hearing and vision problems, respiratory illnesses, heart disease, and many occupational cancers.What Kind Of Compensation Can You Expect?
