Workplace injury sends man to burn center, another to hospital

Across the country, people report to their jobs each and every day. While most workers are probably aware of the potential for injury, most people likely think that they will not be involved in a workplace accident. All states, including Illinois, require employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage in the event of a workplace injury. Two out-of-state men are likely entitled to such benefits after they suffered injuries in a recent accident.

Man killed in workplace accident after falling from school roof

As the summer winds down, people across the country are preparing for the start of a new school year. In addition to the parents and students, schools may be wrapping up construction or other improvement projects in anticipation for the return of students. Unfortunately, one such project resulted in a tragic workplace accident at one Illinois school.

Carbon monoxide suspected culprit in workplace accident fatality

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a risk that has received more attention in recent years. Thankfully, many people in Illinois have purchased carbon monoxide detectors to ensure that their family is kept safe from the deadly gas. Unfortunately, a recent out-of-state workplace accident has demonstrated the potential dangers of the gas after a man is suspected of having died as a result of coming into contact with it.

Workers' compensation benefits could help injured men

Regardless of a person’s occupation, a workplace accident could happen at any time, causing serious injuries or even a fatality. As a result, many employers take extreme measures to ensure the safety of their employees. However, accidents can still happen. Because of the possibility of such an accident, all states -- including Illinois -- require employers to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for their employees. Two out-of-state men likely qualify for such benefits after they were injured in a serious work accident.
