Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation


Being injured on the job can leave you in a very difficult position, and the law addresses the matter with workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation is intended to protect both employees and their employers – by allowing employees to seek compensation for their damages without having to file lawsuits and by shielding employers from multiple legal cases that endanger their ability to stay in business. If an accident on the job leaves you injured, consult with an experienced Illinois workers’ compensation attorney today.


Common Workers’ Compensation Claims

Every workers’ compensation claim involves its own unique set of circumstances, but common related factors include:

Your Compensation

If you’re injured on the job, it can leave you facing considerable medical bills while your earnings come to a standstill. Workers’ compensation is intended to compensate you for both your medical expenses and your lost earnings. In other words, workers’ compensation can help you make it to the other side of this setback, which can be considerable. Obtaining just compensation, however, is not automatic. Workers’ compensation insurance companies are in business to make money, and as such, they make it their business to minimize the amount they pay out in compensation. 

Protecting Your Claim

Because obtaining the compensation to which you are entitled is so important to your recovery, it’s important to know the steps that you can take to help you protect your claim, including:

  • Seek the medical attention that you need
  • Let your employer and/or supervisor know that you were injured on the job as soon after being injured as possible
  • Follow your medical team’s instructions carefully
  • Consult with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney as soon after your accident as possible

Some of the most common reasons for having a claim denied include failing to prove the injury arose out of one’s work and failing to timely notify one’s employer, which makes taking swift action after an accident paramount. Workers’ compensation claims are complicated, but while you focus on regaining your health and well-being, your dedicated workers’ compensation attorney will focus on compiling your strongest claim in pursuit of your rightful compensation.
