What Illinois Work Comp Arbitrators Ask

Pre-trials are opportunities for lawyers to meet with the Arbitrator to get their view on a case. It is an informal discussion that is not binding, but it gives insight on how they would most likely rule on a case.

Today, during two pre-trial meetings with separate Illinois Workers’ Compensation Arbitrators the same theme came up.

The Arbitrators wanted to know the first medical history given at the time the injured person showed up in the doctor’s office.

It was important to both Arbitrators because they believed what the injured worker told the healthcare worker directly after the work accident was the closest to what really happened.

The early statements happened before anyone would be able to tell the injured person what to say or in some way influence them.

This emphasizes the importance of going to the doctor or hospital immediately and telling the doctor what happened, where it happened, how it happened, and all the body parts injured.

The medical records will be reviewed in detail and it will either support your case or weaken it.
