Generally when you are injured at work the best the injured client could hope for is a good workers’ compensation claim. But I recently saw an interesting blog post from the Illinois Workers Compensation Blog that described how a worker actually received over $15 million in a personal injury suit against multiple companies involved.

After an investigation it was determined that the companies has several safety violations and the worker successfully pursued the case against all of them. As pointed out in the article by Michael Helfand, this situation is unique. But it does point out the importance of speaking with an experienced injury lawyer who can weigh all the circumstances of your case and determine potential liability issues with all involved.
