Chicago, IL Workers’ Compensation Automobile Attorneys
Under the circumstances described, you actually have two cases. You have a workers’ compensation case and a case against the driver of the automobile. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act provides that fault or negligence is not required to sustain a case. As long as you were on the job and you were injured, generally, you can be compensated for the injuries you sustain. You can collect three types of damages: lost wages, medical bills and a lump sum settlement. You can also pursue a claim against the driver of the vehicle for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering and disfigurement. This is referred to as a third-party case.
