While most workers do their best to avoid being hurt on the job, the fact is – accidents do happen. If you have been injured on the job in Illinois, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and lost time from work. You may also be entitled to compensation for any permanent injury, disfigurement, or loss of earning power that you experience as a result of a work-related accident or injury.
If you have been injured on the job in Chicago or throughout the state of Illinois, it is important that you notify your employer of the accident and seek medical treatment immediately. As each case is different and subject to a specific time limit (or statute of limitations), it is important to consult with a reputable and experienced workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible. An experienced work comp attorney will be able to advise you as to your rights under Illinois’ workers’ compensation laws.
