Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | April 19, 2022

Dealing with accidents at work is often traumatic and confusing. Also, it can feel intimidating to go against an insurance company representing your employer. Many injured workers make the mistake of assuming that the funds they will receive through workers’ compensation will be fair and cover all of their medical needs and lost wages.

In order to secure full reparations for your lost wages and medical treatment, you need the guidance of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer. If you are a DeKalb County worker who has been injured, or if you have gotten sick from doing your job, don’t make mistakes that can delay, reduce, or even result in denial of a workers’ compensation claim include:

– Failure to notify the employer of the injury in a timely manner
– Letting the insurance company take control of your claim
– Failure to follow medical advice or complete treatment
– Falsifying your injuries and symptoms
– Not filing an accurate injury report
– Trying to file on your own
