Workers' Compensation for Airline Workers in Illinois

Airline workers can sustain a number of injuries in the course of performing their duties. Acute injuries can be sustained during flight turbulence, in accidents in airport terminals or while servicing aircraft, and from faulty equipment. Both acute and repetitive stress injuries to the neck, shoulder, and back are common among baggage handlers and flight attendants who assist passengers with their luggage. All of these injuries qualify for workers' compensation benefits.

Illinois workers' compensation benefits are generous when compared to most other states, but there are rules that govern who can file for these benefits. All workers of Illinois-based airlines typically qualify as do those who are injured in the state of Illinois regardless of where their airline is based. Our practice can help determine if you are eligible for benefits under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act. We can also help you understand how workers' compensation benefits are impacted by your union provisions, a common circumstance in airline worker cases.
