Being injured on the job is a difficult experience at best. You’re injured, facing a lapse in earnings, and waiting for workers’ compensation to kick in – it’s a lot. You naturally count on workers’ compensation insurance to cover your damages in good faith – allowing you to regain your health and well-being and return to work – some cases are contested, which makes having an experienced Illinois workers’ compensation attorney on your side critical.
The majority of workers’ compensation claims are settled without the need for a hearing. Some, however, are not. If your claim is denied outright or the workers’ compensation insurance provider is not interested in negotiating in good faith, a contested hearing may be your best course of action.

While no two workers’ compensation cases are ever exactly alike, there are some universal actions everyone who has been injured on the job should take – in an effort to protect both their health and their workers’ compensation case, including:
A common reason for contested workers’ compensation hearings is settlement offers that fail to address the injured employees’ covered losses in their entirety. Such losses generally include medical expenses that begin with emergency treatment and extend through hospitalization, rehabilitation, and beyond. There is also the matter of lost earnings to consider, and if your earning potential is affected, it is an even more serious matter.
