Injury to Suburban Police Officer Struck by Drunk Driver in Chicago Results in Workers' Compensation Award

Recently, David Figlioli, one of our Chicago workers’ compensation attorneys, successfully concluded the representation of a suburban police officer injured in the line of duty when he was struck by a drunk driver. The officer sustained multiple injuries, including a torn labrum in his left hip.

The officer received emergency room treatment at Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, and subsequently, was evaluated by Dr. Alexander Ghanayem, Chief Orthopedic Surgeon at Loyola Hospital in Maywood. The injured officer was then treated by Dr. Benjamin Domb, an orthopedic surgeon and hip specialist affiliated with Hinsdale Orthopedics who performed surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital.

After an extended period of physical therapy at Accelerated Physical Therapy in Carol Stream and St. Charles, Illinois as well as ATI Physical Therapy in Carol Stream, the officer has been able to resume most of his customary duties.
