Cicero Workers’ Comp Attorney

According to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, an average of 200,000 work-related accidents happen each year in the state. Each one of those accident victims may have been eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. If you’ve been injured in the course of carrying out your work duties, you may qualify to receive workers’ compensation benefits. 

Worker’s compensation, often referred to as workers’ comp, is a benefit paid by your employer’s insurance company whenever an injured employee files a claim. Even if the injury was your fault, you could still be eligible for workers’ compensation.

At The Law Offices of Thomas A. Morrissey, we handle many workers’ comp cases, and we’re ready to help you. When you contact one of our Cicero workers’ comp attorneys, they will answer all of your important questions and file a claim for workers’ comp benefits with the insurance company. We can also file a claim with the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission if needed. 

Contact us now for a free initial consultation to get the information you need, and if you agree, we’ll get started on your case right away.

Workers’ Compensation in Illinois

The current workers’ compensation system began in the early 20th century as part of the “Grand Bargain.” Prior to the establishment of workers’ compensation, employees had the right to sue their employers for negligence and receive compensation for their work injuries. 

Most of the time, these lawsuits resulted in little or no financial recovery for the employees. But every once in a while, an employee would prove negligence, and their employer would be on the hook for substantial jury awards. Employers saw the jury awards as exorbitant and unfair, while employees felt the system was the only recourse they had to pay for work-related injuries.

Ultimately, the “Grand Bargain” was born out of this conflict as a way to protect both sides. The “Bargain” was a compromise in which the workers surrendered their right to sue the employer for negligence. In return, employers agreed to a no-fault system and to pay for medical care and compensation for their employees’ injuries.
