Legal Counsel for Workplace Injuries in Springfield Illinois
When you’re feeling your best at work, you tend to perform your best. Injuries can severely impact your production levels at work, not to mention be annoying and painful. Therefore, if you have a shoulder, knee or joint injury that you suffered at work, contact LaMarca Law Office for help. We provide legal counsel for workplace injuries and inform our clients about their workers’ rights and compensation they may be entitled to. Every work environment has potential hazards and when those hazards result in injuries – you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. The cause and severity of your injury play a role in your compensation package. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you aren’t entitled to workers’ compensation claims because you aren’t in a physical labor job.
Knees, Shoulders, and Joint Injuries in the Workplace
Your knees, shoulders, and joints are some of the most popular injuries that occur at the workplace. Depending on what your job is, these injuries could hinder your job performance. Imagine being a server with a broken leg or a dock worker unable to lift anything – your productivity levels decrease. Workplace injuries can lead to workers being unable to pay their bills. To avoid any of these, contact LaMarca Law Office for your workplace injuries such as:
• Bending Over Repeatedly
• Lifting Heavy Objects
• Standing for Extended Periods
• Physical Stress
• Overuse Syndrome
• Tennis Elbow
• Carpal Tunnel
• Unsuitable Working Conditions
When to File Your Work Comp Claim
It can be a difficult decision determining what is a minor injury and what meets the standard of a workers’ comp claim. Whether it is minor or major, if you get injured at work, monitor it closely. Bring the injury to your employer’s attention ASAP; in the state of Illinois, this needs to be done within 45 days of the incident, or 90 days if it is radiation exposure. From there, your employer will either begin making payments or deny your claim and benefits package.
