Posted by Luis J. Magaña | May 19, 2020 | 0 Comments

During the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic, Essential Workers are on the front line and are being exposed to COVID-19 daily. Should you or a loved one be diagnosed with the virus, you may be entitled to benefits under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act. These benefits include payment of hospital expenses and medical care, payment of 2/3 of your lost wages and a recovery if your exposure to the virus results in ongoing medical conditions or permanent injuries. Essential Workers include any worker who has been required to continue working during the pandemic including, but not limited to, police officers, firefighters, medical personnel, restaurant workers, retail workers and factory workers. For a free consultation of your rights please contact RCK at (815) 730-1977.
