Many of the Illinois workers’ compensation claims filed by airline workers are filed by United Airlines employees. United Airlines employees can file a claim under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act provided the place of hire was in Illinois even if your domicile is outside the State of Illinois. (A first report of the injury must be made to the Administrative Supervisor, however.)) Illinois is considered a very favorable state for workers’ compensation benefits, and injured workers will generally be compensated more fairly in Illinois than if they file in other states.
The law firm of Katz, Friedman, Eagle, Eisenstein, Johnson & Bareck has represented airline workers in workers’ compensation claims for the last 30 years.
