Suburban Firefighter's Workers' Compensation Rights

Appellate Court upholds judgment in favor of suburban firefighter. Village claimed the injury to claimant's knee was not covered under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, claiming that his roughhousing with a co-worker precluded workers’ compensation benefits. The Village was unsuccessful. Our office proved that the claimant did not instigate roughhousing and merely defended himself, thereby bringing his injury under the Act.
