Work Accidents | June 1, 2021

Work injuries occur all the time in and around the Chicago area. The reality is that no workplace is going to be 100% safe for an employee. The good news is that most people who sustain an on-the-job injury in Illinois should be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Minors & Car Accidents in Illinois
Vehicle accidents are not uncommon in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Unfortunately, it is also not uncommon for those involved to sustain significant injuries.
