In IL I have read some things that say under some situations it is possible to file a seperate lawsuit directly against the employer in civil court and it be seperate from work comp. I have not been able to find any examples of how and when a person can do this. Do any of you know under what circumstances if any a person is allowed to pursue a on the job injury in civel court? I've seen this question asked on a lot of boards but no one ever seems to have a definite answer for what's involved, I'm curious of what it takes to be able to do this. Thanks for your help.
