DO YOU HAVE A PERSONAL INJURY OR WORKERS' COMPENSATION CASE IN ILLINOIS?
Who are the parties? What is the statute of limitations?
Auto Insurance--look to individual AND household members.
Important Dos and Don'ts 1. DO take photos of autos, premises, injuries! 2. DO NOT give statements! 3. DO NOT plead guilty to any traffic citations without first consulting an attorney!
Parties/Statute of Limitations 1. Sole and exclusive action of employee (and just because your boss says you are an "independent contractor" does not mean you are necessarily!) against employer generally.
In other words, if you are injured while at work, most likely your ONLY case is workers' compensation.
3 years from D/A or 2 years after last benefits--whichever is longer. Again, do not sit on your rights--talk to a lawyer immediately so you don't wait too long.
Are you receiving Benefits?
TTD or Temporary Total Disability (time off work).
Medical--choice of "2" providers or their referrals.
DO NOT GIVE Statements!
DO Take Photos
