Workers' Compensation Law
Illinois Workers' Compensation Law Lawyers represent accident victims and/or their families in all types of work related accident cases including those with serious injuries, catastrophic injuries and death. If you have recently been involved in a work related accident and suffered an injury, or if someone close to you has been injured or killed in a work related accident, you may have the legal right to obtain compensation. Work related accidents may result in serious injuries or death. Serious injuries can permanently impact the victim's health and lifestyle. If the work related accident was caused by human error, someone's negligence, a hazard, a design flaw or a manufacturing defect, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, loss of wages and other losses. You may also have the legal right to receive benefits from your state workers' compensation program.
Workers’ compensation typically pays for medical care and provides cash benefits for workers who are injured on the job or who contract work related illnesses. It also pays benefits to families of workers who die of work related causes. Workers’ compensation pays for medical care for work-related injuries immediately; it pays temporary disability benefits after a waiting period of three to seven days; and it pays permanent partial and permanent total disability benefits to workers who have lasting consequences of disabilities caused on the job. Each state has its own workers’ compensation program and federal employees are covered under federal law.
