Why you should get a workers’ comp attorney

Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | August 20, 2020

Accidents in Illinois workplaces are often caused by unsafe work conditions arising from ignoring safety rules, overlooking maintenance or other negligence on the part of management. Many people injured at work think they can handle the situation on their own. However, employers and their insurance companies sometimes do not treat employees fairly and try to offer compensation that is far below what is needed to cover all the expenses associated with their injuries.

Here are situations when you should get a workers’ comp attorney immediately:

– An employer has denied that you were injured while on the job
– Your benefits don’t cover your medical bills or lost wages
– Compensation was promised but has not materialized
– A third-party has caused your accident
