Seeking to Maximize Injured Workers’ Financial Relief
Workers’ compensation in Illinois is a no-fault system that compensates individuals with
work-related injures without proving liability. Injured workers are entitled to compensation
for their lost wages and medical expenses, even if their employer was not responsible for
causing the work-related accident. Because of this, there are caps in the amount of
compensation injured workers can recover. Generally, injured workers cannot sue their
employer for additional compensation through a personal injury claim.
At Hanaford Law in Naples, we have extensive experience helping injured workers secure the
compensation they are entitled to for work-related accidents such as:
Auto accidents on-the-job
Repetitive stress injuries and other office-related accidents
Navigating the workers’ compensation system can be complicated. Insurance providers may try
to limit the amount of workers’ compensation you can secure.
However, in many cases, workers’ compensation fails short of covering all the expenses
related to a work-related accident. If another party beyond your employer is responsible for
causing the work-related accident, we will help you secure additional compensation through a
personal injury civil lawsuit.
