Chicago work injury lawyers keep settling claims

Chicago workers’ compensation lawyers at Abels & Annes have recently settled several claims for our clients.

One client, an employee at Adventist LaGrange Memorial Hospital in LaGrange, Illinois required arthroscopic surgery on her left shoulder after she slipped and fell in a bathroom while at work. The employer made no financial offers to the claimant until she retained our firm.

The hospital has since paid the claimant disability for her time off work and they also paid her medical bills. Additionally, the worker received an $18,000 settlement.

In another case, an employee for Miller Products, Inc. suffered a lacerated pinky finger while at work in University Park, Illinois. His employer initially offered him no money for his injury. He has since received disability pay for his time off work and case settled for $7,322.96.

In a third settlement, our client injured his right thumb while changing a gear on a machine while working in Bensenville. His medical bills have been paid for and he just received a $5,300 settlement. He was employed by Grove Industries in Wheaton, Illinois. The employer was insured by Travelers.
