Workers who lift heavy objects on the job can suffer disabling back injuries. Unfortunately, back injuries can be hard to prove, and employers and workers’ compensation insurance carriers often deny them.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, our attorneys help union and nonunion employees obtain all the benefits they deserve from Illinois workers’ compensation. If your claim for a back injury has been denied, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
There are two types of back injuries that may be covered under workers’ compensation:
When you suffer a back injury, it is important for your doctor to understand that your injury is work-related when you seek medical attention. Even if you had an existing back condition, you may be entitled to benefits as long as the injury was aggravated by your job.
Our lawyers have a track record of helping injured workers receive the benefits they deserve. There is never a fee unless we are successful.
