Helping Workers Cope With Work-Related Injuries
If you were injured on the job while working for an employer in the 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.
Work Injuries And Compensation
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 as an injured worker may not know is that you may also 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.
