Understanding Workers' Compensation Laws

Last updated 5 years ago

If you have been hurt on the job, you may have a valid workers' compensation claim. As you will learn in this video, workers' compensation refers to a system in which employees who have been injured on the job may receive income replacement payments or a fixed monetary award without filing a lawsuit against their employers.

Workers' compensation is a no-fault system. Generally speaking, negligence is not an issue, and it doesn’t matter who is responsible. Most of the time, an injury in the workplace is enough for a valid workers’ compensation claim.

If you have been injured, you may have to choose between pursuing a workers' compensation claim and filing a lawsuit against your employer. Call the experienced attorneys at McCready, Garcia & Leet at (773) 779-9885 to learn more about your options.
