Regardless of the type of work you do, there is always a danger of being hurt on the job. Even the most routine office jobs carry certain risks, such as slipping in the hallway on the way to the restroom. Certain occupations, though, are certainly more dangerous than others. While some may be more obvious—construction, for example—others may be less so but just as hazardous.
Joseph G. Haffner, Attorney at Law, is an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer who understands the challenges that injured workers face. Over the last 25 years, he has proudly represented many employees who were injured working as baggage handlers and delivery drivers throughout the Chicago region. During that time, he has built a proven track-record of success and earned numerous favorable outcomes, and is now ready to put his experience to work on your behalf.
O’Hare International Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. According to some metrics, it is the busiest, with more than 70 million passengers passing through in an average year. Until there is a problem, most travelers give little thought to the crews responsible for the handling of luggage and baggage, but with that many people on the move, the sheer volume of baggage involved is staggering.
When a baggage handler is injured on the job, the obstacles to fair compensation can be overwhelming. Airlines often rely on powerful insurance companies and prestigious lawyers to limit their potential liability. Attorney Joseph G. Haffner will not be intimidated or tricked into a quick settlement that fails to meet your needs. Instead, he will stand and fight until you receive every dollar you deserve.
Similar to airline baggage handlers, those who process and deliver packages for a living face physical dangers on a daily basis. A single slip or misstep could result in serious injury and a lifetime of potential problems. No matter what major parcel delivery service you work for, if you have been injured on the job, Mr. Haffner is equipped to help. He and his team will advocate on your behalf in pursuit of reimbursement for medical costs, lost wages, partial or full disability, and vocational training if necessary. Our goal is to get you back to work as quickly as possible without compromising your health or financial situation.
