Helping Workers in Chicago and throughout Cook, Lake, Will, Kane, DuPage, and McHenry Counties Get the Compensation They Deserve
Workplace injuries in Illinois are covered by the Workman’s Compensation Act. The act limits the recovery given to an injured worker from his employer. One of the purposes of the Act was to eliminate the need to prove fault on the part of the employer or the lack of fault of the employee.
You may still recover even if your accident was your fault. If you are injured while performing your job, you may have a claim against your employer. However, you must promptly report the injury to your employer and get names of any witnesses to the incident.
Under the Workman’s Compensation Act, injured workers are entitled to have reasonable medical bills paid and also partial payment of wages while recovering from injuries.
If you or a loved one has suffered an accident while at work, it is possible to seek recovery for any disability caused by the accident on a temporary or permanent basis.
