Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law provides 3 benefits for injured workers.
The first benefit is paying for medical treatment.
The second benefit is payment while you are off work.
The third benefit is payment for the value of the work injury.
Payment for your medical treatment is very important. If you cannot obtain medical treatment then you cannot get better and back to work.
If the insurance company does not pay for the medical treatment or will not authorize it, then call an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney right away.
It does not cost you anything to hire an Illinois Work Comp lawyer. The reason is that the law allows an injured worker to hire a lawyer immediately and they do not have pay the lawyer until the case is settled and money is available to the injured worker.
Make sure to get your important medical treatment as soon as you can.
