Elephant kills caretaker in workplace accident

Some people are passionate about the care of animals. While some in Illinois choose to focus their passion for animals by working at a veterinary office, others take a somewhat more dangerous route. For example, one caretaker was believed to be killed in a recent workplace accident that took place out-of-state and involved an elephant. Some say such accidents could be prevented if additional safety measures are in place.

How are repetitive motion injuries treated?

Despite the many safeguards that an employer might put in place, there are a variety of different workplace injuries that a worker in Illinois may face.  Many people automatically think of safety violations or serious falls when they think of a workplace injury. However, a person's life can be seriously impacted by a much more subtle form of an injury -- repetitive motion injuries.

Fatal workplace accident sparks investigation

There are many dangers associated with the workplace. While most employers do everything in their power to protect their employees, a workplace accident can still occur. Fortunately, there is help available for those who have been injured or lost a loved one in such an accident in Illinois. The family of one out-of-state man will likely need this help after he was killed at work.

We can help with Illinois workers' compensation claims

There are many people in Illinois who are incredibly hard-working and simply want to support their family. Unfortunately, a workplace injury can hinder a person's ability to do so. However, employers are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for their employees in the event of a workplace accident. While you may vaguely remember someone from human resources discussing such benefits on your first day, along with all the other information covered, many people may be unaware of the exact procedures and laws governing the benefits. Fortunately, we can help.

Company will contest fine imposed after fatal workplace accident

There are many people in Illinois and across the country who report to work every day. These people fulfill their job responsibilities to the best of their ability and return home to their families. Unfortunately, one man will never return to his family after a fatal workplace accident that resulted in OSHA proposing a fine against the victim’s employer.
