Workers' Compensation

Suffering an injury at the workplace can be both overwhelming and affect the entire family of the injured worker.  The loss of income can be devastating.  The disability suffered may be temporary or permanent.  The key is to act promptly to minimize the loss of wages, make sure medical bills are paid for and allow the injured worker to pursue a physical recovery without the stress of being without a paycheck.
When a worker is injured in the workplace while engaged in his or her job, even if working off-site they are entitled to be compensation under Illinois Workers’ Compensation Laws.  Generally the worker is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who is at fault for the illness or injury.  The extent of compensation depends on the extent of the injury, the wages earned in the 52 weeks prior to the injury and a host of other factors.  The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Ariano Hardy Ritt know how to make sure that injured workers are properly compensated both during and after the period of recovery.
