If you have been injured on the job, you are entitled in Illinois to workers’ compensation benefits under the Workers Compensation Act. The Workers Compensation Act allows you to get lost wages immediately following the accident. You can get a percentage of your salary that you made before the accident while you’re off work due to your injuries. The Workers Compensation Act also allows for you to get all your medical bills paid as a result of the accident.
Finally, the workers’ compensation law allows you to get a lump sum settlement from the workers’ compensation carrier. That means you may be entitled to specific money damages for your injuries. The lump sum settlement depends on a variety of factors and it’s a complicated area of law.
That’s why if you’ve been injured on the job or at work, you need to have an attorney that works on your behalf. At Gainsberg Law we have represented any individuals injured on the job.
