Workers’ Compensation Claim Attorneys in Chicago, Illinois

Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | May 17, 2024

Each year, millions of American workers experience an injury or illness that puts them at risk of leaving the workforce. If you have suffered an injury arising from an incident at your place of employment, were involved in a work accident, or have suffered what is called an “occupational disease” that resulted from your work, you are eligible for workers’ compensation. The workers’ compensation system in Illinois was designed to protect injured workers and give them the security of knowing they would receive medical care and lost wages when injured on the job.

However, it doesn’t always happen this way. You may have to fight for proper medical treatment, or you may be told that you need to return to work when you really cannot. That’s why it’s important to find experienced attorneys to handle your case. You will need an expert team like Krol, Bongiorno & Given to ensure that you get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.

Here are some examples of situations that you need to consider hiring a worker’s compensation attorney:

– Review of your file to ensure maximum benefit
– Denial of an application to reopen your claim
– Filing for permanent partial disability
– Filing for occupational disease or repetitive trauma claims
– Representation when you’ve been denied time off, have lost wages or been denied medical treatment

Workers’ compensation is a complex area of law that recent legislation has made it more difficult for injured workers to obtain their benefits. In particular, many changes to the law regarding eligibility criteria have made the process more complicated. While workers’ compensation in Illinois can pay for your lost wages and medical expenses, keep in mind that the insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible.
