Chicago Work Injury Lawyers

Chicago Work Injury Lawyers

Illinois state law provides generous benefits for those who have been injured on the job.  However, you have to know what to ask for, know what you are supposed to get, and know how to get it when the insurance company tells you no.  You have to know how to navigate between various insurance coverages, while protecting your proceeds from liens, subrogation, and other pitfalls.  It pays to get competent help in these situations, and the best way to protect yourself, your family, and your livelihood, is to hire experienced Chicago work injury lawyers.

Even if you don’t think the work that you do is particularly dangerous, serious accidents on the job are not uncommon, and some jobs are riskier than others (construction work is a prime example of a highly dangerous occupation). If you’ve been injured on the job, it can result in mounting medical costs and lost wages, and obtaining your rightful compensation is key to your ability to fully recover. If you’ve sustained an injury on the job, you need a dedicated Chicago work injury lawyer on your side.

Do I Really Need a Lawyer?

If you’ve been injured at work, you’re going through plenty, and the last thing you probably want to think about is hiring an attorney. When you hire us, we make the process easier.  You’ve hopefully only gone through this situation one time – we have been through it thousands of times.

Whether it’s us or someone else, a competent Chicago work injury lawyer will navigate the workers’ compensation claims process on your behalf – and can often help expedite this process. While you aren’t required to hire an attorney, doing so is likely to help you obtain a better claim resolution, and get it more quickly.  Furthermore, our experience allows us to look for alternative sources of liability from third parties, allowing us to maximize your recovery further.  All told, working with an experienced work injury lawyer is in your best interest. 

Complicating Factors

Workers’ compensation claims tend to be complicated by demands for intricate paperwork, strict deadlines, and exacting regulations, which are all part of the reason that working with a respected work injury lawyer is always preferable. There are, however, certain complications that make having an attorney in your corner even more important, including:

  • If your injury requires surgery
  • If your injuries are classified as moderate to severe and could lead to permanent disability
  • If you had a pre-existing health concern at the time you were injured
  • If your injury precludes you from returning to work (or from returning to work in your former chosen profession)
  • If your employer disputes the decision handed down by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission
  • If you are denied workers’ compensation benefits outright

Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

Workers’ comp claims are, at best, complicated, and even minor errors in keeping up with any of the following tasks can slow down, stall, or even doom your claim:

  • Attending all medical appointments
  • Compiling and organizing all insurance records 
  • Attending all hearing dates
  • Gathering eyewitness testimonies
  • Compiling and organizing all the evidence related to your accident and attendant injuries
  • Compiling all information gathered during arbitration

Your Chicago work injury attorney will help ensure that every element of your claim is airtight – in support of its best possible resolution.
