If you want to obtain compensation after you get hurt in a car accident, by a doctors’ mistake, or any other way that is someone else’s fault, you usually need to file a personal injury lawsuit. But these lawsuits can take a long time and you need to prove to a judge or jury that the other person was negligent and responsible for your injuries. That can be difficult, and if you lose, you get nothing.
Workplace related injuries are treated differently, however. As is the case in every other state, workers’ compensation in Illinois is a deal between most employers and their employees designed to get money into injured workers’ pockets as quickly as possible without the need for lawsuits or for proving fault.
In Illinois, in exchange for workers’ compensation benefits, injured workers usually can’t sue their employer for damages related to their on-the-job injury. For employers, the upside for them is that they are largely shielded from costly personal injury lawsuits and large jury verdicts by employees who get hurt on the job.
Because the majority of Chicago based employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance or self-insure against workplace injuries, most Chicago workers are protected against the prospect of losing their livelihood because of a job-related accident.
After a Chicago workplace accident, an injured worker should report the incident to their Chicago employer who is obligated to provide you with the information you need to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Chicago law also prohibits employers from firing or retaliating against employees for seeking those benefits. Sometimes, however, employers and their workers’ compensation insurance companies don’t follow the law or live up to their end of the bargain. This is where you may need lawyers to step in to assist you as much as possible.
While you don’t need to prove fault to obtain workers’ compensation benefits, you do need to show that you are injured and fully or partially disabled and you need to show that the injury was work-related.
Like all insurance companies, workers’ compensation insurers want to pay as little as possible on claims and may challenge your right to get any benefits at all or assert that your injuries don’t warrant the amount of benefits you seek. They might argue that you did not get injured while on the job, that your injuries were preexisting, that they aren’t as serious or debilitating as you claim, or that you did or failed to do something that bars your right to benefits.

The client was making a delivery with a 2 wheeler and was going downstairs in the building. When he got to the basement, the floor of the restaurant was an uneven concrete and had a lot of holes. Someone put a piece of wood to “fix it” when he was going over the piece of wood with his 2 wheeler, it got stuck and pushed him. His weight shifted to his left leg, and because there was a hole under the wood he fell. As a result, the client sustained injuries to his left knee.
