Millions of employees are injured at work each year and thousands of these accidents result in serious injuries and death. Like most states, Illinois mandates that injured employees be covered by and receive benefits under workers’ compensation laws. The only requirement an employee must meet to obtain workers’ compensation benefits is that he or she be injured while working.
Work accidents can cause serious injuries and sometimes permanent damage. Some extremely serious work injuries can permanently hinder a person’s ability to get around and continue their daily duties. If you were injured on the job, it is important to hire lawyers who are well known for their exceptional knowledge of the workers’ compensation law. A workplace accident lawyer can help you document your injuries, preserve evidence, and claim fair compensation for your losses.
