Indiana Law Firm

Voted one of the Best Lawyers in America since 2017, Joe Williams is often brought in to try complex lawsuits. Joe brings a unique ability to communicate with the jury, making the complex seem simple. His jury trial success includes recovering $112.4 million for a surgeon-inventor who was cheated by Medtronic (2nd largest verdict in Indiana history), $14.5 million for a roofer wrongfully accused of insurance fraud by State Farm (largest defamation verdict in Indiana history), and $3 million for a former school bus driver injured by a defective Cook Medical IVC filter.* Joe’s trial success has been widely reported in publications like USA Today, the Indianapolis Business Journal,, and the Indianapolis Star. In 2015, Joe was appointed liaison counsel for MDL No. 2570 (In re: Cook Medical).

Can my trucking injury case be filed in Illinois?

If you have been injured in a truck driving accident, you may be wondering whether your worker’s comp case can be filed in Illinois. For an injured truck driver, this is an important question to ask, as the jurisdiction of the case can end up having a big impact on your benefits.

There are three main scenarios in which the Illinois Worker’s Compensation Commission would have jurisdiction over a trucking injury:

-If the accident took place in Illinois, If the employer is principally located in Illinois, or If the contract for hire is in Illinois

This means that a truck driver whose home terminal is in Illinois can make a claim for workers comp benefits in Illinois even if they were injured while on the road in another State. It also means that truck drivers who get hurt while passing through Illinois can file a claim in Illinois, even if their employer is located in another state.

If you have been injured on the road, and you are unsure where and how to file your workers comp claim, call us at (312)-726-5567 to begin your consultation. We can advise you whether Illinois is the right state to file for you. We have handled well over 30,000 claims for injured workers throughout the state of Illinois.
