Our firm fights for the rights of injured workers
Every once in a while, there's a story on the news about people hurt in an act of workplace violence. Some are killed. We've become used to hearing about it, but we rarely think it could happen close to home. The truth is, it can happen anywhere. If you are a victim of workplace violence, the experienced attorneys at Schweickert & Ganassin, LLP can help you file a claim for workers' compensation benefits in Illinois.
As with workplace accidents, acts of violence are unexpected. These acts come in many different forms. Milder forms include harassment and verbal abuse. But these acts can cause serious injury when they come in the form of a physical altercation, a stabbing, gunshots or the use of any object or vehicle as a weapon.
