Many people in Illinois report to work each day in order to support themselves and their families. Unfortunately, completing their job responsibilities may actually inhibit their ability to earn money if they become a victim of a workplace injury. One out-of-state man recently had to be airlifted for medical care after he became injured while at work.
The winter holiday season is a time for food, family and friends. For some regions of the country, including Illinois, it is also a time for snow and ice. Anyone who has ever attempted to remove snow and ice knows of the hassles such an endeavor presents, yet knows of the necessity of completing the task in order to ensure the safety of employees and customers. Some businesses choose to hire someone else to take care of such chores. One woman who worked for a company that specializes in snow removal was recently a victim of a workplace accident.
