Advocates For Injured Workers

Illinois Workers’ Comp Counsel For Remote Workers

Working from home has become a new norm for many in Chicago and Illinois. This new norm can also come with unique challenges, including the risk of work-related injuries. At The Law Office of Raymond L. Asher, Ltd, we understand that accidents and injuries can happen anywhere you’re working, including in the comfort of your home. As a remote worker, we affirm that your rights to workers’ compensation are just as valid as those of on-site employees.

The misconception that injuries occurring at home are ineligible for workers’ comp is one we encounter frequently. While not all cases may qualify, you can pursue a claim if the injury relates to your job duties. We are committed to clarifying these nuances and providing you with the legal support necessary to navigate your claim.

Remote Workers Can Endure Multiple Types Of Injuries

Injuries at home can range from slips and falls to conditions developed over time due to an inadequate work environment. They can include:

  • Repetitive stress injuries from prolonged computer use
  • Back and neck injuries from poor ergonomic setups
  • Accidents related to work-specific tasks
  • Accidents related to work travel, like at the airport or at the hotel

Our mission is to help you through every step of the process to obtain compensation, even in an age where the lines between work and home are blurred. We focus on severe immediate and long-term physical injuries that remote workers may suffer and offer the dedicated care and attention necessary to solve them. We recognize that there may be an additional burden of proof to demonstrate how your injury is related to work when you are at home or working remotely elsewhere. We can devise a legal strategy that addresses these specific issues to create a compelling case on your behalf.
