Local 150 Operating Engineer Receives Over $400k Worker's Comp Settlement for Repetitive Trauma Injury

David Figlioli, a Chicago workers’ compensation attorney at our firm, has successfully prosecuted a case before the Illinois Industrial Commission on behalf of a Local 150 Operating Engineer who sustained repetitive injury to both hands and arms over a 6-month period as a result of his work at the Nipsco Power Plant in Wheatfield, Indiana. The injured journeyman was in charge of operating a heavy-duty drilling rig to take core samples at the plant when he sustained his construction site injury.

The award is thought to be a near record settlement for repetitive injury and came after multiple surgeries performed at Illinois Bone & Joint Institute. The injured worker was treated at Athletico Physical Therapy. His treatment included a Functional Capacity Evaluation (FCE). In addition, he was required to engage in vocational rehabilitation at the behest of workers compensation administrator Genex. As a result, he was offered a $12.00 an hour job as a telemarketer for a mortgage company.

This result is one in a long line of successful workers compensation representations by attorneys David Figlioli, Robert Butzow, and Carl Virgilio of the Morici, Longo & Associates workers’ compensation law department.
