Crystal Lake law firm Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC has successfully obtained a favorable ruling in a recent appeal of the case Adcock v. Illinois Workers' Compensation Comm'n, 2015 IL App (2d) 130884WC.

The McHenry County law firm of Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC is pleased to announce a recent successful appellate decision obtained by Attorneys Francisco J. Botto and Alex C. Wimmer. Attorneys Botto and Wimmer represented the claimant David Adcock in the case Adcock v. Illinois Workers' Compensation Comm'n, 2015 IL App (2d) 130884WC.

According to court documents, Adcock testified that on May 10, 2010 he sat on a rolling chair that his employer, Knaak Manufacturing, provided in order to accommodate a medical condition with his right knee while performing work-related tasks. Adcock injured his left knee while working and he sought benefits under the Workers' Compensation Act. Adcock's employer argued that the injury he sustained did not "arise out of" his employment because the act of turning in a chair is one used in everyday life. The arbitrator found in favor of Adcock.

May 2014 Settlement - Botto Gilbert Lancaster, PC assisted a repeat workers' compensation client for whom we successfully settled a 2004 claim also for a back injury requiring fusion. The client sustained a second back injury in 2011 while lifting steel rods at work, requiring a revision to the fusion in 2012. After an extensive recovery period including aggressive physical therapy, the client was released with permanent restrictions and could not return to his previous employment. Several motions were filed by our office on client's behalf to force the workers' compensation insurance company to commence with a vocational rehabilitation program to assist client in finding alternative employment. Ultimately, the client was unable to find suitable employment and the case settled for $125,000.00.

BARRINGTON – An Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital nurse was killed Wednesday morning when a snowplow hit her in the parking lot of the hospital, a Lake County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman said.

Diane Shogren, 51, of Ingleside, was hit by a red 2012 Ford F-450 truck with a snowplow attached driving in reverse, according to the Lake County sheriff's and coroner's offices.

The man who was driving the truck got out when he noticed he hit something and saw Shogren, Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd said. He called for help, and Shogren was taken into the emergency department at the hospital.
