We represent injured workers throughout Illinois
No matter what type of job you have, a healthy back helps you do it. A back injury can make it difficult to perform everyday tasks, and even more difficult to perform job duties. If your back injury happened because of a workplace accident, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at Schweickert & Ganassin, LLP help injured workers throughout the state of Illinois file successful claims.
A back injury can occur in any type of job, but are common in jobs that often require lifting. These include construction workers, delivery drivers and warehouse personnel. The trauma can be immediate-for example, when lifting an object that is too heavy. Or, the injury can develop over time after repeated lifting.
