McAllister v. Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission:  Defining the ‘Arising Out of’ Standard
The Illinois Supreme Court issued a landmark decision in McAllister v. Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission on September 24, 2020.  The Supreme Court clarified the ‘arising out of’ standard in determining whether a petitioner sustained a compensable accident.  The court discussed the Young and Adcock cases and resolved the split among appellate court districts.  Hear two attorneys analyze the holding in McAllister and discuss its impact on the workers’ compensation practice as well as how the holding will change how accident is established at hearing.
