Illinois Workers’ Compensation Laws
We help you navigate Illinois workers’ compensation laws, and understand what benefits you are entitled to when you are injured at work. Most employers in the state of Illinois are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. When employees are injured while working, regardless of fault, workers’ compensation insurance is used to pay:
- All necessary and reasonable medical expenses;
- Death benefits if the injury is fatal; and
- Wage replacement and disability benefits depending upon the number of days the injured worker misses work and the extent of an injury.
When Your Claim Is Denied, We Fight for You
If your claim for workers’ compensation is denied, we quickly go to work building your case and assisting you in filing a claim with the workers’ compensation commission. We can also assist you in requesting and preparing for your hearing. We gather the evidence that is necessary to prove that your injury happened on the job (one of the primary reasons for claim denial is that the employer denies that the injury occurred while the employee was on the clock) and that the extent of injury you are claiming is legitimate. If a hearing is unsuccessful in yielding you the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve, we can file an appeal. We are willing to work as hard and as long on your case as is necessary to ensure that you get the benefits that you deserve.
