Injured at Work? Our Experienced Lawyers are Here for You!

Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | August 16, 2022

If you were injured at work or you developed a health condition due to the nature of your work, you should be able to concentrate on your physical healing – not have to worry about your employer denying you the benefits you deserve. Illinois’ no-fault workers’ compensation system entitles those injured employees eligible for many forms of compensation including reasonable medical care, lost time from work, and any temporary or permanent disability.

Following a workplace accident, injured individuals may be inclined to speak with their employer’s insurance company, without the assistance of an attorney. However, insurance companies do not represent injured workers. As a result, they often attempt to minimize or deny payments for job-related injuries.

Regardless of your specific injury, you will want to work with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to ensure you get the most out of your claim. It is imperative that injured workers understand that a successful claim requires strong medical documentation and an ability to demonstrate that an injury or condition was caused by their job duties.
