$250,000 Worker Compensation and 2 Years Pay to Construction Worker for Birth Defect Discovered During Surgery

Can a Construction Worker Collect Workers Compensation for a Birth Defect Discovered During Surgery? A 31-year-old Illinois construction worker (cement finisher) suffered a stroke after climbing up and down a ladder multiple times on the job. He underwent three brain surgeries, during which it was found that he had been born with a congenital anomaly (an arteriovenous malformation, or AVM).
