has anyone heard about a fireman who only worked about 3 months, he says he fell getting off a truck and is now permanently disabled.

Why are people who get hurt at work made out to be freeloaders? If you are legitimately hurt, shouldn't you be compensated? Go after the ones who are turning in false claims or the ones who get hurt at home and say it happened at work. Having a work comp claim does not make you a bad person!

If it is true, at least he worked. That is much more than most people do these days. How many people sit at home on their couch eating bon bons and spitting out kids just to collect more $

Totally agree.....if you get hurt on the job why does it matter if you only worked there for 3 months.....if the doctors will not let him go back he should be paid!

You would be the first person suing if a hurt firefighter was allowed to go back to work but couldn't save you because of his injury!

Lots of not so correct activities happen at the fire department. Private business being ran from the fire department.(construction companies, guttering, cabinet making, private investigations and process serving)Duck and goose hunts scheduled through the fire department.

Workman's comp claims run rampant in Illinois and opportunity for fraud most certainly exists.

My employment was based in Missouri for 10 years and my employer required wc claimants, able to walk, spend 8 hrs./day...5 days a week at the terminal even if they just sat there all day.

Apparently Missouri law.

I wonder how that would affect claims if Illinois had a similar law ?

The practice of working on city time at another private business is not limited to the fire department.
