What Happens If I Get Hurt At Work?


A: Look Out! Sometimes the place you work can be a dangerous place. Your employer has a responsibility to keep from harming its employees. Learn what you can do if it happens to you.

Illinois has laws to provide compensation for persons injured at work, without regard to fault. Medical and disability payments are provided to injured workers regardless of fault or responsibility. Your employer most likely carries workers compensation insurance. These matters are heard at the Illinois Industrial Commission. Richard F. Mallen & Associates, Ltd. has more than thirty years of experience handling these claims on behalf of injured parties.

In addition to workers compensation claims you may have a case against a third party that is not your employer. This is common when your work requires driving, construction or jobs where outside (third) party contractors or subcontractors provide services. There may also be the potential for a product liability case if you were injured using a dangerous or defective product at work.

The types of claims available to working people are varied. It is essential that you contact us immediately to protect your rights, as these third party claims may not be obvious to you. Investigation may uncover facts not apparent initially at the accident site.
