Illinois Teacher Slip And Falls At Work

I love reading Illinois work comp case law updates. Sometimes the law changes. Sometimes a new case clarifies how existing law should be applied.

Twisting Injuries On The Job

I read once that if something drives you crazy, you should scream in to a pillow.  I don’t do that, but if I did it would be because of the calls I get and cases I read about where I can’t believe the problems an insurance company is causing an injured worker.
