$290,000 Workers' Compensation Settlement
Work Injury Sustained While Digging A Hole
While working for the public works department of a Chicago suburb, our client injured his back while digging to repair a water main break. About a week later, he slipped and fell on the job injuring his back even more severely with resulting spinal and nerve damage that required multiple surgeries including a laminectomy revision. Our attorney filed a claim with the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission and we were able to secure an appropriate award in the amount $290,000 to assist this injured worker with his financial affairs and with his continued medical treatment.
