Lake County Shoulder Injury Lawyer

Lake County Work-Related Shoulder Injury Lawyers

Lawyers Handling Work-Related Shoulder Injury Cases in Waukegan

In almost any workplace, ranging from a construction site to an office, it is necessary to repeatedly use our arms and shoulders to carry out job functions. Job site shoulder injuries are unfortunately commonplace. If you have suffered one, you may have legal options for pursuing compensation.

At the Wheaton law offices of Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., we represent victims of work-related shoulder injuries in both workers' compensation claims and third party liability lawsuits. If your shoulder has been injured in the workplace, make certain you understand your rights. Contact us to arrange a free initial consultation with an experienced attorney.

For more than 30 years, we have strived to help our clients protect their rights and get the medical treatment necessary for work-related injuries. We understand that shoulder injuries have the potential to cause a lifetime of pain and limitations. Our focus is on achieving the financial compensation you will need to carry on after suffering:

  • Rotator cuff injuries
  • Chronic joint dislocation
  • Injuries requiring shoulder surgery
  • Bicep tendon tears
  • Strains and sprains
  • Complete shoulder joint replacement

Workers' Compensation Claims

Illinois law provides workers' compensation funds for medical care following an on-the-job injury. However, these claims are frequently denied. Review boards may decide that your work-related shoulder injury is actually a pre-existing condition. You do not have to just accept a denial. With the help of the lawyers at Salvi & Maher, L.L.C., it may be possible to appeal the claim, have the denial overturned, and stabilize your financial future.

Third Party Claims

A work-related shoulder injury may not be entirely the fault of your employer. A third party may also be liable for what has taken place. If another party is found to be partially responsible for your injuries, you may be able to secure additional financial compensation from, for example, the manufacturer of a defective product, the manager of negligently-maintained property, or the provider of shoddy services to the site. Claims such as these can be hugely beneficial in helping you cover injury-related costs that exceed your workers' compensation benefits.

To discuss your work-related shoulder injury and learn more about possible sources of compensation, contact us by calling 847-662-3303 to schedule a free initial consultation. We are available to meet with you at any of our convenient office locations in Lake County, DuPage County, McHenry County, and Cook County. We will only collect attorneys' fees and associated costs if we recover a verdict or settlement in your favor.
