Workers' compensation for repetitive strain injuries

When most people hear "on-the-job injury," they think of a disaster involving machinery or a fall that leads to severe damage. However, an on-the-job injury can also refer to injuries caused by repeated motions or lifting at work. Those who suffer from carpal tunnel, back pain, or other similar conditions because of their job duties can legally seek help and compensation.

Illinois residents with work injury claims should file quickly

For those dealing with a work injury, workers' compensation rules can many times be overwhelming. Typically, injured workers are focused on their recovery and don't spend a lot of time thinking about filing the appropriate claims with their employer right way. While this is understandable, many Illinois residents are being denied workers' compensation claims as a result of waiting too long to file their injury reports.

Workers' compensation claimants may face trouble in Illinois

Controversy over disability cases filed for employees at an Illinois correctional center could lead to a review of the workers' compensation system within the state. According to recent investigations, a partial permanent disability (PPD) award was granted in nearly all of the 140 workers' compensation cases filed by employees of the facility.
