A Peoria area employee working as a tree trimmer
A Police officer for the City of Peoria suffered a catastrophic injury while working for the City of Peoria. As a result of her injuries, Officer Taylor was unable to return to work as a police officer for the City of Peoria. As her attorney, Stephen P. Kelly obtained her benefits under the Pension Act and her PSEBA benefits. Subsequent to winning the trail for her pension and PSEBA benefits, Stephen P. Kelly tried Officer Taylor’s case in front of the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission. After receiving a very favorable award from the Illinois Worker’s Commission, the City of Peoria appealed the award to the Illinois Appellate Court. The City of Peoria argued, that the Pension benefits awarded to Officer Taylor should be used to reduce her award under the Illinois Workers Compensation act. The Appellate Court rejected the City of Peoria’s argument, and upheld the decision of the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission.
