Dedicated personal injury attorneys representing people injured by airlines in Chicago, Cook, Lake, McHenry, Dupage, and Will counties.
Reporting your Injuries
After an injury occurs at work, you should immediately identify and notify appropriate personnel. Be sure to take note of the type of injury, cause of injury, location of the injury, and any other information believed to be necessary or pertinent. Failure to notify your employer of an injury may have a detrimental impact on your claim. If you have failed to notify your employer of the injury, via telephone or written communication, you should be sure to do so as soon as possible. Not only will this serve as formal notification in your case, it may prevent future injuries to yourself or to others.
Assistance Filing a Negligence Claim
If United Airlines acted with negligence, which ultimately was the cause of your injury, you deserve compensation. You will not be able to maximize the amount of compensation if you do not understand the legal process. Our experienced Chicago Personal Injury Attorneys can help assist you through the entire process of filing a personal injury claim against United Airlines. Negligence claims may be the result of several factors. Many airline employees are required to work in dangerous conditions and become injured when required to lift heavy objects without assistance from others, exposed to turbulence on an airplane, weather conditions when traveling between locations, and much more. If you or someone you know have been injured on the job, contact Chicago Personal Injury Attorneys Newland & Newland, LLP.
Chicago Worker’s Compensation Attorneys
There are many major airports throughout the state of Illinois. Any injuries that occur at work while in the state of Illinois are subject to the Illinois Worker's Compensation Act, irrespective of the notion that the employee was not employed within the state. Airline workers who are required to travel may be entitled to workers compensation for any injury that is in the “course of employment.” It is important to note that the standard is not limited to those activities causing injury that occur in the workplace. The legislature recognizes that traveling employees have multiple workplaces and wants to ensure that airline employees required to travel are protected.
