New Illinois law helps workers with latent illness from asbestos

Illinois drivers could face harsher penalties for striking road workers

For many motorists, road construction is an unavoidable headache; people don't like to be delayed and detoured. While construction is a temporary inconvenience, some drivers get so upset with it that they become aggressive, impatient and reckless. When this happens, the lives and safety of the road workers on the scene can be in jeopardy.

How much can a person collect in workers' compensation in Illinois?

There are many misconceptions about the benefits available to people injured on the job. Some people think workers' compensation benefits are reserved for only severe or fatal injuries while others assume that they could be fired if they file a claim for benefits. Believing these and other misconceptions can be a costly mistake, especially when it comes to assumptions regarding the actual amount of compensation that may be available.

Injured on the job? Why your worker classification matters

Injuries or illnesses suffered on the job that affect your ability to work can be very upsetting. Not only can your condition be painful, it can also lead to lost wages and increased medical expenses. As such, securing workers' compensation can be crucial to ease the financial burden of a work-related condition.
