When You Can’t Return to Work: Car Accident Aftermath

You’ve Been Injured in a Collision, Now what?

If you’ve been seriously injured in a car accident and need to recover at home, the last thing you want to worry about is work.  Luckily, the many serious injuries people endure in auto accidents often qualify for disability or even SSD (Social Security Disability). Your time at home, and the benefits that apply to your case, will most likely be determined by a medical professional’s instructions about recovery time and will be based on the severity of your injuries. 

The first thing to do is secure a dedicated team of Peoria personal injury attorneys to help you navigate the aftermath of the accident.  A team that is experienced and aware of Illinois legalities can help you determine what steps to take, what to file for and what will happen to your job.  Unfortunately, some employers will not hold your position open for you until your return, as it is not required in Illinois. If this happen to you, all is not lost. Schierer & Ritchie, LLC can help you seek the full and fair compensation you need to make a full recovery, whether or not you return to work after your accident.

Is Illinois an At-Fault State?

Illinois is an at-fault state when it comes to car accidents, so a personal injury claim can help you to recover your losses, including loss of property, loss of wages, coverage for medical expenses and pain and suffering. There is a statute of limitations on filing a car accident lawsuit, so it is imperative to act fast.
