Workers’ Comp Benefits

Mchenry County Work Injury / Worker’s Comp Attorneys

If you are injured at work off-site and on the job, the first step is to tell your supervisor and file an incident report, regardless of the severity.  Something that seems minor could end up being a major issue a few days later.  Because these injuries happened on the job, you are entitled to compensation for wage loss and rehabilitation.

In order to make sure that you get the Worker’s Comp Benefits you deserve for your work injury, call Franks, Kelly, Matuszewich, and Andrle Attorneys at Law.  He has guided people through the worker’s compensation system for 20 years. We can assist you in getting a just settlement or award.

Single Incident or Sudden Work Injuries

These injuries are what most people think of when talking about worker’s compensation issues. A UPS driver lifts a heavy box and pulls a muscle in his back. Someone slips and falls on a slippery floor and lands on their shoulder.

Repetitive Stress Work Injuries

These injuries can be the same as the single incident injuries. Only the cause is different. Instead of a single incident, these work injuries can result from years of repetitive stress.

Whether it happens all at once, or over a period of months or years, we have handled McHenry County Worker’s Comp cases that involved:

  • rotator cuff tear

  • torn ACL (anterior cruciate ligament)

  • torn MCL (medial collateral ligament)

  • torn meniscus
