Workplace accident for transit worker

An Illinois transit worker was recently injured while working on repairing the Red Line train in Chicago. While the nature of the worker's injuries was not initially disclosed, the worker was reported to be in good condition after the workplace accident. Shortly after the accident occurred, he was transported to a local hospital for treatment.

In Illinois and across the United States, thousands of workplace accidents occur every day. Fortunately, most of those accidents don't result in serious injuries. That being said, even a minor workplace accident may entitle the injured worker(s) to receive benefits under the state's Workers' Compensation program.

Companies improve workers' compensation plans

In Illinois and elsewhere, workers' compensation is available for those employees who are injured on the job. It can be used to cover medical expenses for injuries sustained while at work, and even to make up for lost wages while the employee recovers. Lately though, some companies have been considering changes to workers' compensation -- for the better.

Chicago tightening workers' compensation budget (again)

Faced with the same budget shortfalls that are affecting governments everywhere, Illinois' Windy City has a new target. Led by Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and Alderman Edward Burke, Chicago is cracking down on workers' compensation cases, with the goal of trimming $15 million from the city's $100 million annual tab. The approach is two pronged; taking measures to reduce worker accidents, but also aggressively pursuing fraudulent cases.
