Illinois Workers Comp When Your Chair Rolls

Without hearing the facts, you likely wouldn’t think just sitting on a chair could lead to an Illinois workers’ compensation case.  People sit in chairs every day of course.

When You Are Attacked At Work

The last two years have made people crazy. The types of calls I get have changed. I’ve never spoken to more people who have a clear mental illness than I have recently. I’ve also never been contacted by more people who have been attacked on the job. It’s not just people trying to enforce mask … Continue Reading

Target Workers’ Compensation Claims In Illinois

I love Target. While I’ve been involved in probably over 100 workers’ compensation claims against them, I don’t view Target like I do Walmart.

When Your Employer Won’t Turn Your Claim In

I really, really can’t stand shady insurance companies.  I also have disdain for employers who act like the rules don’t apply to them.  This happened recently to a caller of mine who unfortunately had a common problem. He badly injured his knee in a work-related accident.  He has no medical insurance, but somehow managed to … Continue Reading

Illinois Work Comp And Bullying

Nobody likes bullies. You’d think that once you are out of high school they would be out of your lives.  Sadly they exist in marriages, social interactions and very often the work place. If your boss or co-worker picks on you, belittles you, teases you, etc., it can make going to work a living hell. … Continue Reading
