Illinois work injury lawyers and Chicago motor vehicle accident attorneys at Abels & Annes have agreed to represent a truck driver that was injured on the job. The client will be pursuing both a worker’s compensation claim and a third party claim.
In the course of his employment, the trucker was making a delivery in Chicago earlier this month. He was working on a loading dock when a forklift driver quickly turned a corner and struck him. The forklift was moving too fast for conditions on the loading dock.
Immediately after the collision the truck driver started experiencing back and neck pain. An ambulance was called and he was taken to Mercy Hospital and Medical Center.
Over the next several days the claimant’s pain became so bad he could barely get out of bed. He has since started treatment with an orthopedic doctor in the Chicago area.
Due to the fact that the truck driver was injured during the course of his employment, we will be pursuing a work comp claim on his behalf. Further, because he was injured by the negligence of another party, we will be pursuing a claim against the forklift driver and his employer.
If you’ve been injured on the job, call the Chicago work accident lawyers at Abels & Annes at 312-924-7575 for free consultation. There is no attorney’s fee unless we recover for you.
