Some workplaces carry a much greater risk of injury than others, often because of the nature of the work. Construction sites, for example, have more potential for injury than offices simply because of the tools and materials workers use. But injuries, even seriously disabling ones, can happen in any line of work. The difficulty lies in proving that you were not hurt by your own doing.
In order to receive workers compensation, the injuries must not have occurred because the injured employee acted irresponsibly or recklessly. You probably won't receive compensation after hurting yourself while attempting to get a laugh at a construction site. On the other hand, if you followed safety procedures and work guidelines closely, your odds of receiving workers compensation are very good. In reality, most cases fall between these two extremes.
If you have been injured at work, even though you followed safety procedures correctly, you are entitled to seek financial help for your injury-related expenses. But you may face serious difficulty successfully proving your case. You can greatly improve your odds with the help of an experienced Illinois employment lawyer.
