Illinois work accident lawyers at Abels & Annes have agreed to represent a medical assistant that was injured on the job back in July this year. The accident happened when she slipped and fell on a wet floor in a workplace bathroom.
After the worker fell, she had immediate onset of pain in her right ankle and foot. Due to the severity of her pain, a Chicago fire Department ambulance was called to the scene. Ambulance took her to the ER at Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago. At the hospital, she was examined and x-rays were taken.
Over the next several days her pain remained and her employer sent her for further medical treatment at Concentra in Morton Grove. As of today she is still having pain and swelling in her right ankle and foot. She had to take several days off work due to her injuries.
In an injury case such as this, Chicago work comp lawyers at our office make sure your rights are fully protected. We want to client to continue to get the appropriate medical treatment she needs, and at the end of her medical treatment we will attempt to negotiate the bodily injury settlement on her behalf.
