What does an over the road truck driver who resides in Texas and gets injured in Arkansas have in
common with a machinery installer who resides in Indiana and gets injured in Missouri?
Answer: Illinois Workers Compensation benefits, so long as they work for an Illinois Company, or, were hired in Illinois.
You will only have to travel to Illinois for trial, in that somewhat unusual instance where your case cannot satisfactorily settle. Our firm has handled workers compensation cases for workers injured all over the United States- Oregon, Texas, Arkansas, on the East Coast, with no more difficulty than if the worker had been injured in Chicago.
While we encourage clients to come to our office and meet with us, we understand that sometimes this is not possible.
Far from having to sacrifice your case because you were injured outside of Illinois, you will be entitled to the full benefits of Illinois Workers Compensation law. This means receiving medical treatment (where you live) paid for by workers comp, weekly benefits and permanent disability benefits. Call or e-mail one of the Workers Compensation Attorneys or Chicago injury attorneys at Lipkin & Higgins to see if we can help you with your car accident case or chicago injury case.
All consultations are free of charge.
