Shootings and Workers’ Compensation

The rash of work place shootings is sad and disturbing.

Illinois law provides for victims of work place shootings to be compensated.

If an employee is killed, then the family may recover death benefits.

If a co-worker views the shooting and suffers trauma, then the co-worker may be able to recover benefits.

Much is situation specific, so you should contact an Illinois Work Comp lawyer to discuss.

Avoid a Work Injury Mistake

You do not have to stand alone if you are injured on the job.

Your employer and the Workers’ Compensation insurance company have plenty of experts and lawyers advising them regarding your work injury.

They are looking out for their own interests and not your interests.

Do not rely on friends or family who are not lawyers who do not have the needed understanding and expertise to help you.

Fortunately, pursuant to Illinois law you can have a Work Comp lawyer counsel you without any upfront fees.

Workers’ Compensation lawyers only get paid if they recover money for you. This is not like TV or some types of lawyers who will charge you $500 an hour or a retainer fee of $5000.

Illinois Work Compensation laws are rules are complex. Make sure you have someone on your side to protect you.
