Arm, shoulder, and neck injuries can result from many different kinds of work activities. From lifting, to doing overhead work, to pushing or pulling heavy equipment or parcels, to trauma injuries, to herniated disks, your work can be very hard on your arms, shoulders and neck. Injuries such as rotator cuff tears, rotator cuff impingement syndrome, and torn biceps can be expensive, painful, and possibly require you to change jobs.

If you have injured your arm, shoulder or neck on the job, Illinois workers’ compensation is supposed to be there for you. You are entitled to be compensated for medical expenses for treatment such as steroid injections, surgery, rehabilitation, permanent work restrictions and disability, and lost wages. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to get the money you need without a workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you.

If you need legal advice and practical assistance with your injury claim, call the workers’ compensation lawyers at the Orzoff Law Offices as early as possible. Our attorneys serve arm, shoulder and neck injury victims throughout the Chicago metro area, with convenient locations in Chicago and Northbrook, Illinois.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers are experienced in helping arm, shoulder and neck injury victims obtain the benefits they deserve. Here is an example:

” Forty-two-year-old package delivery driver tore his rotator cuff while lifting a 100-pound package from the top of his truck. After two surgeries he was permanently restricted from overhead lifting. He had been employed by the national package delivery company for twenty-one years. He was unable to return to his job due to his restriction. He accepted a job as a security guard for a smaller wage. The case was arbitrated for the workers’ compensation commission and the wage differential award was entered with an anticipated payout in the amount of $985,000.00.

We never charge for an initial consultation. The sooner you talk to one of our worker injury lawyers, the better we can protect your rights to workers’ compensation benefits.

Filing an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Claim for Arm, Shoulder, or Neck Injury

Many times employers will deny workers’ compensation claims for arm, shoulder, and neck injuries, claiming the injury didn’t happen on the job, that it was a pre-existing condition, or that the worker didn’t give notice of the injury.

Under Illinois state law, you have forty-five days to notify your employer of your injury. If you had a pre-existing arm, shoulder or neck injury, you can still receive workers’ compensation if the injury was aggravated by your work activities.
