Illinois Workers’ Compensation Is Your Employer’s Duty
Workers’ compensation, sometimes called workman’s comp, is something your employer is required to provide. The process begins when you are injured, as your employer is required to report all workplace injuries.
When we take legal action, it’s not against your employer. It’s against your employer’s workers compensation insurance company. All we want is to get the insurance company to do what they are supposed to — provide you the financial support you need after a workplace accident.
When seeking workers compensation, many people are concerned with the impact the claim will have on their relationship with their employer. It should have no impact. Employers cannot legally fire you for filing a workers’ compensation claim. The law is clear that they cannot retaliate against you in any way, or you will have the right to take legal action against them.
Worker’s Compensation and Third Party Liability Claims
In many cases, workers’ compensation is not the only avenue of obtaining financial support. If an accident also involved a third party, you may also be able to seek compensation from the negligent party in a personal injury lawsuit.
