Illinois is a "no-fault" workers' compensation claim state. If you are injured on the job, you should file a workers' comp claim regardless of negligence or any sort of fault. Unfortunately, some Illinois employers still pressure employees not to file claims, or they claim that a workers' injury is not work-related.
At Kanoski Bresney, our attorneys protect the rights and benefits of injured workers and victims of construction accidents through settlement, negotiation and arbitration. We work vigorously for our clients to maximize deserved compensation throughout central Illinois, from Springfield to Champaign to Bloomington.
