If you suffer a back or joint injury in the workplace, Capron Avgerinos & Heinlen can help you.
Whether you work at a desk job or on the factory floor, you can sustain an injury to your back or joints. Back and joint injuries in the workplace can occur suddenly, or they can develop slowly, causing degenerative damage over many years. In Illinois and Iowa, both types of on-the-job injuries are covered by workers’ compensation.
Our attorneys understand that back and joint injuries are not trivial. Pain, loss of mobility, days away from work, and financial hardship can result. Our Illinois and Iowa lawyers have secured awards for a wide range of workers who have suffered back and joint injuries, such as physical therapists, social workers, machinists, truck drivers, automobile mechanics, construction workers, and iron workers. We have also worked extensively with organized labor. We have achieved strong results for many union members who have sustained debilitating back or joint injuries on the job.
We Handle a Full Range of Back and Joint injuries
Our Illinois and Iowa attorneys handle the full range of workers’ compensation claims involving ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and nerve injuries, including:
- Knee injuries (ACL or MCL tears)
- Arm, elbow, wrist, hand, and finger injuries
- Ankle, foot, and toe injuries

Capron Avgerinos & Heinlen’ attorneys consult with vocational and orthopedic specialists to help determine the severity of your injury and calculate the damages that might be involved. Depending upon the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to receive full medical expenses, temporary disability, permanent disability, vocational rehabilitation, or compensation for loss of earning capacity as a result of your back or joint injury.
