Most injured workers in Illinois do not know if they are being treated fairly.
This is not necessarily surprising.
Work injuries are fairly uncommon, and thank goodness for that.
The Workers’ Compensation insurance people deal with work injuries every day, and you do not.
So look for these common rights to make sure that you are being treated according to the law.
Your bills should be paid for the work related medical treatment.
While you are off work you should be paid 66 percent of your average weekly wage.
After your medical treatment is over you should be paid a settlement for your work injury.
If any of these things are not being done for you after a work injury you should contact an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyer to find out why not.
Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyers do not charge you any fees until they recover benefits for you.
