Champaign, IL Arm and Shoulder Injury Lawyer

Pekin work injury lawyer for broken arms and dislocated shoulders

Attorneys for Work-Related Arm Injuries in Champaign County, Sangamon County, Peoria County, and McLean County

Workers can suffer a wide variety of different types of injuries while on the job, including injuries to the arms or shoulders. While some of these injuries occur because of workplace accidents, others take place because of repeated physical motions or other health issues. Regardless of the cause, employees can receive workers' compensation for injuries that they have suffered as a result of the work they have performed. To ensure that they receive the benefits they are entitled to, workers should consult with a lawyer who is experienced in workers' comp cases.

The law firm of Kanoski Bresney has been providing legal help to victims of work-related injuries and other types of personal injuries for over 40 years. We understand the laws surrounding workers' compensation, and we have helped injured employees recover more than $100 million. In addition to assisting with workers' comp claims, we can also help determine whether compensation can be recovered through third-party claims against other individuals, companies, or organizations who were responsible for an injury. We work to help victims receive payments that will allow them to make a full recovery and continue supporting their families financially.

Common Types of Shoulder and Arm Injuries

Injuries to the arms and shoulders often occur because of accidents in the workplace. A fall from a ladder or scaffold can result in broken bones, dislocated joints, or sprained shoulders, elbows, or wrists. If a person's hands or arms are caught in moving machinery, or if arms are crushed by falling objects or moving machinery, this may result in amputation. Accidents can also result in torn ligaments, nerve damage, or other types of serious injuries.

Repetitive motions are another common cause of arm and shoulder injuries. Painters, assembly line workers, construction workers, delivery drivers, and people in many other industries can suffer repetitive stress injuries such as strained muscles, pinched nerves, or carpal tunnel syndrome. These injuries can cause a great deal of pain and lead to restrictions in a person's range of motion, difficulty lifting objects, and other physical limitations. While these effects may be temporary, allowing a person to return to work after receiving treatment and taking time to heal, some injuries are permanent, and they may cause a worker to be unable to return to their previous position and continue earning the same level of income.

Whether an injury occurs in an accident or arises out of the normal course of a person's work, workers' compensation benefits should fully cover all of the medical treatment needed, including emergency care, surgeries, medications, and physical therapy. Disability benefits will also address a person's loss of income. A person who faces restrictions on the types of work they can perform may receive temporary disability benefits while they are recovering from an injury. In cases involving a permanent disability, the benefits a worker can receive will depend on the parts of their body that were affected and how much the injury has affected their ability to use their arms, shoulders, or hands.
