In the state of Illinois, employers are legally required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance for their employees, with insurance companies paying worker’s compensation benefits if or when an employee submits a claim. In the event that a workers’ compensation claim is disputed, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) enforces the state’s worker’s compensation laws and determines employee’s rights. Keep in mind, however, that the IWCC strongly recommends consulting with an experienced personal injury attorney when pursuing workers’ compensation benefits.
In the state of Illinois, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury lawsuit following a car accident is two years from the date of the collision. As you can see, Illinois state laws governing car accidents and their applicable statutes of limitations are often complex and time-consuming. Contact an experienced personal injury lawyer today if you or someone you love is currently struggling with a car-related injury.
Motorcycles are dangerous machines that often leave those involved in collisions at risk of serious injury and/or death. While wearing a helmet is always important when seeking to protect yourself from bodily harm, it is also crucial to obtaining a favorable outcome should you ever find yourself injured in a motorcycle-related accident. Call Bradford C. Bucklin Attorney at Law today to schedule your free consultation.
If a truck driver does anything that contributes to a collision in which you are injured, you and your family may be able to file a lawsuit and obtain monetary damages for your pain and suffering. Under Illinois state law, the truck driver’s employer and other parties involved with the automobile — including the owner of the truck and/or the manufacturers of any parts that prove defective — may also be legally responsible for your injuries. Speak with an experienced personal injury attorney today to schedule your free consultation and learn how best to move forward.
In cases where the death of a person is caused by negligence and/or misconduct of another individual, the person or entity responsible for the death can be held legally responsible in a wrongful death suit. Wrongful death claims may be brought by the surviving family members of the decedent, including his or her spouse, children, siblings and/or parents. While losing a loved one is never easy, it is especially difficult if those responsible for their death escape without ever facing justice.
