Under Illinois’ Workers’ Compensation Act, most employers with payrolls over $1,000 must carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover all employees. This is to ensure that injured employees are not left high and dry after a workplace accident.

The definition of “employee” is often a matter of dispute, and employers often categorize certain employees as “independent contractors” instead of full-time employees. However, these “contractors” also must be covered by a company’s workers’ compensation insurance.

At Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd., our workers’ compensation lawyers understand how the state’s workers’ compensation law applies to all relevant employers. Furthermore, we understand the benefits to which you are entitled as an injured employee.

We are prepared to represent you in the potentially difficult task of pursuing your just compensation after a workplace accident. Our attorneys know the arguments that are often used to prevent employees from obtaining their compensation and we know how to disprove them.

The state of Illinois has a comprehensive workers’ comp system that is designed to protect people like you. We ensure that it does.
