Workers’ Compensation Attorney Chicago 

Workers’ Compensation Attorney Chicago 

Being injured on the job leaves you facing a complex array of challenges. While your medical expenses pile up, you’re also missing hours on the job, and the overall effect is likely to be overwhelming. Fortunately, however, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney in Chicago can help. 

Your First Steps

You’ve been injured on the job, which means that you’ll be looking to your employers’ workers’ compensation insurance to cover your losses. Because these claims are often complicated, however, there are some first steps that every claimant should take to help ensure that he or she receives just compensation, including:

  • Seek the medical care and attention you need as soon after the accident as possible –or as soon after you recognize that you’re suffering from a work-related illness or injury as possible
  • Let your employer, boss, and/or supervisor know that you’ve been injured on the job as soon as it is possible for you to do so
  • Carefully follow the instructions provided to you by your doctor (and other members of your medical team) 
  • Work closely with a dedicated workers’ compensation attorney in Chicago from the outset

By paying careful attention to these basic steps, you can help protect both your health and your workers’ compensation claim. 

Covered Damages

The damages you experience as a result of being injured on the job can be extensive, including:

  • Your Medical Costs – Serious injuries can segue into secondary health issues and often require ongoing medical attention, which means your medical costs are likely to be significant. Your healthcare expenses may begin with emergency care and can extend to surgery, hospitalization, doctor care, rehab, physical therapy, pain management, and much more.
  • Your Lost Earnings – While your physical injuries are healing, returning to work is likely to be off the table, which translates to lost earnings. If your injuries are serious and interfere with your ability to do your job, a loss in earning potential is a real possibility. 

Making sure that your complete damages are well represented in your workers’ compensation claim will play a critical role in your ability to obtain fair compensation. 

The Insurance Company

Your accident claim will be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company, which – though it is paid to cover your losses – is a for-profit enterprise that is firmly invested in continuing to churn out high profits. As a result, you should not expect the insurance company to compensate you fairly without you putting in considerable effort, and this is where your dedicated workers’ compensation attorney – who will skillfully advocate for your rights and for your rightful compensation – comes in.
