If You Suffered a Back Injury at Work, Speak to a Lawyer

Back injuries are the most common injuries in the workplace. Employees in nearly every type of job can suffer this type of injury. A construction worker can suffer a back injury when lifting or moving heavy equipment. A nurse can develop back pain over time lifting and assisting patients. These are just two examples of the types of work that can lead to serious back injuries.

Additionally, these types of injuries often develop over time. Repetitive stress on the back through your work can lead to back pain and injuries. In these situations in particular, it is important to work with an attorney who has experience developing the evidence necessary for your workers' compensation claim.

Whether you were injured at work over a long period of time or if you were injured in an accident, a lawyer at Brady & Jensen can help you secure compensation for your injury. Our Illinois attorneys have handled thousands of workers' compensation claims. Through this experience, we have developed an in-depth knowledge of back and spinal injuries and how to help our clients secure maximum benefits for these types of injuries.

Workers' Compensation Benefits in Illinois

If you are injured at work, regardless of who was at fault, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. These benefits are paid out by your employer's workers' compensation insurer. Benefits include compensation for your medical costs as well as a portion of the wages that you have lost as a result of being injured.

The amount of compensation you will receive as a result of your back injury will depend on the specific facts in your case. When you work with our firm, we will clearly explain the process and what you can expect through your workers' compensation claim. We will also investigate any other avenues for compensation that may be available. This includes third-party claims if your injury was a result of the negligence of someone other than a co-worker or your employer.
