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 Chicago, Illinois, we have extensive experience helping injured workers secure the compensation they are entitled to for work-related accidents such as:
- Construction accidents
- Manufacturing accidents
- Industrial accident
- Electrical accidents
- Auto accidents on-the-job
- Toxic exposure
- 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. Our McHenry County work injury lawyer Robert Hanaford will help you obtain the right medical care in an effort to secure the compensation you are entitled to. 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.Contact Our Chicago Workers' Comp Attorney
