Chicago workers’ compensation lawyer agrees to handle claim for injured store employee

Illinois work injury attorneys from Abels & Annes have agreed to represent employee that was injured at a large national department store chain. The worker was injured in early October 2010 in Chicago, Illinois.

The claimant hurt her low back while lifting a heavy object. She initially hoped her pain would go away, however the next day her low back pain was worse and she went to the emergency room at University of Chicago Hospital.

At the ER, physicians prescribed Vicodin for pain and ordered the employee off work, and light duty upon return to work.

After a couple of weeks with no relief from her pain she went to see her family physician. She also plans on following up with an orthopedic medical doctor for further care.
