Illinois Airline Workers’ Compensation Attorney

DuPage Airline Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Airline employees are at risk for injuries on the job, and workers’ compensation claims within the industry are common. At the Illinois Law Offices of Francis J. Discipio, we represent workers’ compensation claims of flight attendants, cockpit crew members, baggage handlers, ground crew members, and other airline workers who have been injured at work.

Types of Airline Workers’ Compensation injuries:

  • Acute or repetitive stress injuries from lifting and handling passenger bags
  • Injuries sustained as a result of in-flight turbulence
  • Injuries from slipping on ice or other substances in the airport or parking lots
  • Injuries that occur during a layover

Challenges Filing a Claim:

There can be many challenges for airline employees filing workers’ compensation claims. Major commercial airlines often require employees seeking claims to see airline-approved medical professionals. It is not uncommon for these medical professionals to receive pressure from the airline or their insurance representatives to limit medical treatment and return employees to work too quickly—often to the detriment of the employee’s health.

Our experienced Illinois attorneys have successfully recovered benefits for employees at major airlines and can help you pursue the compensation you deserve. We are committed to getting you the quality care and benefits that you are entitled to under the law. We serve the greater Chicagoland area and Cook and DuPage counties.

If you are employed by a commercial airline and have sustained an injury on the job, contact our workers’ compensation law firm for a free consultation.
