Workers’ Compensation

Regardless of who is at fault, if you are injured at work you are entitled to compensation under Illinois workers' compensation laws. Even if you were at fault and responsible for your own injuries, you can make a claim. Compensation is easier to obtain in a workers' compensation case than in other personal injury cases because you do not have to prove that your employer or anyone else caused the injury.

Under workers' compensation laws, your employer must pay for your medical expenses and pay you at least a portion of your salary during the time that you are unable to work. In addition, you may also receive compensation for a disability and job re training. If you have a permanent disability as a result of your work injury, you are entitled to additional compensation.

In addition to claims against your employer, you may have a case against another party or company if they were at fault. For example, if you were hurt in a car accident and the other driver was at fault, you may have the right to receive both workers compensation benefits and compensation from the other driver. Also, if you were injured as the result of a defective product, you may be able to bring a claim against the companies responsible for the defective product.
