The city of Chicago, Illinois is one of the most highly industrialized and important cities in the United States, which means workplace accidents very common due to its large active workforce. Here are a few examples of workers’ compensation cases for repetitive motion injuries that we have handled recently:
After working for 2 years in factory work, an employee began to develop job-related physical problems in his back, mid-section, and neck.
After working for 4 years as a metal cutter in a factory, a worker developed severe job-related problems in his right hand. He reported his discomfort but was never sent to the doctor; on the contrary, he was fired.
After working for 2 years manufacturing airplane and tank parts, an employee developed job-related back problems and a hernia. He reported his problems, and instead of sending him to the doctor, his employer terminated his employment.
After communicating with Grupo MedLegal, each of these cases received support from a lawyer to represent them and free medical treatment for the physical issues caused by their work.
