Workers’ compensation is intended to help protect employers and employees alike. If you are injured on the job, it can leave you at a serious loss, and obtaining just compensation is paramount. While the workers’ compensation process is often lengthy and laborious, an experienced Joliet workers’ comp attorney is on your side and well prepared to help.
If you’re injured on the job, you’ve not only suffered a physical injury, but you are also likely in need of extensive medical care and could be looking at a considerable amount of time off the job. In other words, being injured on the job is expensive. Your medical costs alone can include:
Ensuring that your medical costs are fully represented in your claim is an important step in ensuring that you are adequately compensated.
Although you are very likely covered for any injuries you sustain on the job, this does not make obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled a certainty, and the path forward can be complicated. While your claim will be unique to your accident and the circumstances involved, there are some things that you can do to help ensure that your claim receives fair treatment, including:
While the workers’ compensation insurance provider handling your claim is paid to cover your losses, it is also motivated by its own profits, which means that it is invested in paying out as little as possible. In other words, it is very likely that you will need to go after the compensation to which you are entitled. One of the most common reasons for having a claim denied is failing to demonstrate that the injury in question happened on the job (and isn’t a result of something else or an extension of a pre-existing condition). The workers’ compensation insurance provider is not going to make it easy for you, but your claim and your health are too important not to pursue head-on.
