Do not let the Workers’ Compensation insurance company tell you where to file for your work injury benefits.
Why does it matter?
Illinois law provides some of the highest protections and settlements in the Country.
Some companies will tell you that you must file in the State where you live or in the state where your employer is located.
Not true. Illinois law allows you to file your work injury claim in Illinois if you are injured here or if you contracted or were hired out of Illinois. Doesn’t matter what state you were injured in.
It can get complicated. So make sure to speak with an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney to make sure that you get the Illinois benefits you deserve.
In some cases you can file in Illinois even if you settled your case in another state!
