When a family member is injured due to negligence it impacts the whole family. Sadly, only 20 percent of workers have access to paid family leave to care for a family member. Many mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, grandmothers, and grandfathers find themselves taking unpaid time away from work to care for an injured loved one. Many more are unable to take any meaningful leave because they can’t sacrifice their paycheck.
Clifford Law Offices’ advocacy on behalf of Illinois families does not stop at the courthouse. We fight to protect Illinois families and their injured loved ones in every way possible. On Tuesday, March 22nd, 2022, Sarah F. King, partner at Clifford Law Offices, led her fellow Women’s Bar Association members in meetings with state legislators and officials to discuss the importance of paid family and medical leave.
