Farm Accidents

As it turns out, if you are a farm worker and you have been injured while on the job, you may not be covered underneath Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. At Leiter Law Offices, we want you to know that you have rights outside workers’ compensation to recover from farm injuries, and we can help you do so.


With an office conveniently located in Joliet, Illinois, our comprehensive injury law firm represents farmers and farm workers in farm-related accidents throughout the surrounding southwest communities of Chicago.
