After suffering a work-related injury, you may not know where to turn. The workers’ compensation system seems complicated with difficult rules and regulations. Maybe you have been wondering if you need to hire an attorney. If so, please consider what a workers’ comp lawyer can do for you while you make your decision.
Take the Mystery Out of Worker’s Compensation
The whole process of receiving benefit payments for an on-the-job injury is an unknown for most people. If you have never had a workers’ comp claim before, the system can be difficult to understand. Your Illinois workers’ comp lawyer can help you know how to handle your claim, meet all deadlines, and get the compensation you deserve.
Give Advice When It Is Needed Most
You need someone who understands workers’ compensation standing by your side. Your workers’ comp lawyer can review the facts of your case, tell you how to handle your claim, and explain the different types of workers’ comp benefits:
- Necessary medical care to recover from your injury;
- Temporary total disability,
- Temporary partial disability,
- Vocational rehabilitation and maintenance,
- Permanent partial disability,
- Permanent total disability, and
- Death benefits.
Negotiate on Your Behalf
Talking to insurance companies, your employer, and your employer’s attorneys is not an easy task – for most of us. But this is exactly the type of things your Illinois workers’ comp lawyer can do for you. When your employer or its insurer tries to minimize your benefits, your attorney has the experience to negotiate the best settlement possible.
Push Back on a Denial of Benefits
Getting a letter that denies your workers’ compensation claim is upsetting! You don’t have to give up just because your employer is holding out on you. Instead, talk to your workers’ compensation attorney. This may be the time to file an application with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission if you have not already done so.
Navigate the Workers’ Comp System
This may be the most important thing your workers’ comp lawyer can do for you. From the beginning of your claim until its resolution, your legal representative helps every step of the way.
