I had a slip and fall a couple of months ago and tore my rotator cuff so I have to have surgery now. What is that companies liability, if any?

You are entitled to benefits under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act. The company is responsible for paying all of your medical bills, 2/3 of your average weekly wages while you are off and unable to work, and an award/settlement at the conclusion of your treatment. Please call me if you have any questions regarding your rights. Good luck with the surgery.
