Illinois workers’ compensation lawyers at Abels & Annes, working with co-counsel, have reached a $24,000 settlement on behalf of a machine operator that sustained injuries while working in Chicago. The claimant’s injuries took place in June, 2008 and February, 2009.
The machinery that the plaintiff worked with was extremely loud. This caused stereocilia of the inner ears (a form of hearing loss). The claimant also developed tinnitus from repetitive motion.
