The Law Office of Tim Torres - San Antonio Family Lawyer

Texas Law Firm

My online practice is focused on preventing legal problems -- family risk management. An ounce of prevention really is worth a pound of cure.  Corporations and wealthy individuals have lawyers. Average families should, too.  I want to build relationships with my clients. If you're about to make a major change in your life, your lawyer should be letting you know if there are any legal risks, and what reasonable steps you can take to minimize them.

But when needed, I will go to bat for you in a lawsuit or help you find the right kind of specialist for your legal problem. Hiring a lawyer can be stressful, complicated, and expensive, especially if you've never done it before. Online legal help can be confusing or not specific to your situation. I spent 21 years as a U.S. Air Force officer. The law is my second career, so I know what you're going through and I can help you make sense of it all.

If you are facing divorce, have a dispute over child custody, visitation, child support, parental rights, or division of marital property, if you're accused of abuse or neglect, experiencing domestic abuse, hurt in an accident or accused of wrongdoing in an administrative or civil matter, I want to help. I want to provide you the kind of professional legal service that each one of us deserves. If you or a family member have an auto accident, you should have someone to call from the scene. I can talk you through what you need to know to protect your rights. If you want to represent yourself in a legal matter, I want to make sure you have the right forms and know how to use them effectively. If you think you need a lawyer to represent you, I want you to have someone you can trust to tell you the truth, who is not just trying to close the deal. I want you to be fully informed of the legal and factual issues that affect your case.

I want you to have a lawyer who keeps in touch with you and responds to you without needless delay. The time to establish that relationship is not when the crisis occurs, but when things are going well.

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.
