Have You Been Injured At Work?

When you have been injured at work, you may feel that everything is out of your control. Workers' compensation benefits should provide for your medical care and lost wages, but going through all the procedures and paperwork can be difficult. Your employer will tell you what medical providers you must use, and the insurance company may try to argue that your injury is less serious than it is.

Meanwhile, you may be struggling to pay your bills while you are unable to return to work during your painful recovery. You may even fear that asking for help will anger your boss and jeopardize your job.

You Have Rights

It's important to remember that you have rights after you are injured on the job. This is true regardless of your position or your immigration status.

The Illinois workers' compensation system is designed to provide for your medical care, rehabilitative costs and help with your lost wages.

When you are having trouble getting the benefits you deserve, it can be important to have the help of an experienced workers' compensation attorney. A lawyer can help you at almost every step in the process.
