Workers’ Compensation And Weekly Disability Benefits

If you were injured on the job while working for an employer in the Greater Chicago metropolitan area or Northern Illinois, talk to an attorney on the workplace injury litigation team at Foote, Mielke, Chavez & O’Neil, LLC. We have decades of experience helping injured workers receive full and fair compensation in addition to Illinois workers’ compensation benefits.

The Benefits For Which You Are Entitled

Workers injured on the job in Illinois are typically covered for medical treatment and weekly cash benefits through their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance coverage. When you accept a workers’ comp settlement, you will typically forfeit your right to seek additional compensation from your employer, except under very specific circumstances involving criminal negligence.

What you may not know, however, is that you still may be entitled to seek additional money damages from negligent parties through a third-party lawsuit. Such lawsuits for damages can be brought against a negligent property owner, equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor on-site, or a co-worker who caused the accident through negligence or willful misconduct.
