    All of the people I came into contact with were friendly, professional, and empathic. I had no problem talking to Mr. Strong whenever I needed. I trusted his advice and I was not disappointed. I have referred others to him. Hopefully, I will never need Workers’ Comp services again but I will not hesitate to use his services if I do. Thank you to Mr. Strong and every member of the office!

    Strong law is not just a business, they are family. Stress was the very last option for me from the start. I didn’t have to worry about anything. I saw the best physical therapist and my treatment was smooth. I was never left in the dark. My attorney was awesome and her assistant was wonderful. Always polite and respectful. They are miracle workers. I thank you guys very much for being with me through my journey.

    I would totally  recommend Strong Law to anyone facing problems involving workers compensation. Todd Strong immediately took the time to answer all my questions and help me along throughout this whole process. Whenever some new issue came up, he or his experienced staff were there for me, from the beginning, up until the very end. Thank each and everyone of you.

    Do You Have a Work Injury Claim in Illinois?

    Workers who are injured on the job in Illinois are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to be paid by the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act also covers pre-existing conditions if the employee’s job exacerbated the condition.

    The law prohibits injured workers from filing injury lawsuits against their employers directly except in rare circumstances. However, if a third party’s negligence contributed to your injuries, you may be able to recover additional benefits by filing a third-party personal injury lawsuit.

    Faqs

    What benefits can I receive by filing a workers’ compensation claim?

    If you were injured while performing your work duties in Illinois, you are entitled to receive:

    • Medical care at no cost to you
    • Vocational rehabilitation for free
    • Financial compensation to cover a portion of your lost wages
    • Compensation to pay for permanent disabilities
      Are all work injuries covered by workers’ compensation insurance in Illinois?

      Are all work injuries covered by workers’ compensation insurance in Illinois?

      • Injuries that occur while an employee is impaired by alcohol, drugs, or prescription medications are generally not covered.
      • Intentionally self-inflicted injuries are not covered.
      • Injuries that happen while an employee is violating company policy are not covered.
      • If the worker is committing a serious crime when the work-related injuries happen, they are not likely to be covered.
        Are my injuries covered if they happened while I was traveling for work?

        Maybe. If you are classified as a full or part-time employee and you were performing work-related duties when the accident happened, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If you were on a business trip and were conducting personal business when you were injured, your injuries will probably not be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. However, if you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover compensation by filing an injury claim or lawsuit against the responsible party.
