Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law provides for compensation when a worker is injured on the job.
Illinois Courts have ruled that if a motor vehicle crashes into an office and injures a desk worker, then the injured worker is not entitled to money and medical treatment. The basis for the decision was that the worker was not at increased risk compared to the general public.
That would mean if the Balloon crashed on a tree trimmer or a construction worker they would get Work Comp payments, but not if the balloon crashed into an office building and hurt someone.
The more your work takes you outside, the more chance you would have getting hurt according to this case.
The law is a strange thing at times. That is why a lawyer can help you figure out the best way to make sure you get all the money you deserve under the law.
