If you break a bone, throw out your back, or hit your head hard enough to get a brain injury at work, your employer should get you the care you need. Similarly, if you sustain a personal injury and someone else is at fault, you shouldn’t have to cover the expenses yourself. At Associated Surgical Center in Arlington Heights, Illinois, the team offers thorough evaluations for work and personal injuries and can treat them promptly.

Work injuries are injuries that happen while you’re on the job. Someone else may or may not be at fault for your injury, and it can even be due to your own negligence. Regardless, you should visit a doctor right away for an evaluation of your injury so that you can receive worker’s compensation benefits.
Work injuries can happen to anyone, regardless of their job type. While some jobs are clearly more dangerous than others, there is at least a small risk of an injury in any workplace. Some common injuries that happen at work include:
Worker’s compensation is a type of insurance your employer has to cover the expenses associated with your work injury. The funds should cover your diagnosis and any treatment, whether it be a one-time procedure or ongoing medical care.
Personal injuries are injuries that happen as a result of someone else’s negligence or ill intent. If you get a personal injury, you and your lawyer need to prove that someone did their job incorrectly, neglected their responsibilities, or hurt you on purpose and that your injury was a direct result. Just like with a no-fault work injury, you should visit a doctor for an in-depth evaluation right away after a personal injury happens.
Personal injuries can happen in a variety of settings, not just at work. You might get a personal injury from:
