Workers injured in Illinois, whether it be by fire or lifting on the job, are entitled to off work pay, medical treatment, and payment of settlement for the injury.

When Should You Call a Work Comp Lawyer?

If you are injured on the job the Law provides you should receive 3 benefits.

First is medical treatment.

If your medical bills are not being paid, contact an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney right away.

Second, you should be receiving time off work pay.

If you are not being paid or the amount is incorrect make sure to call a work injury lawyer.

Third, you are entitled to a settlement.

If the insurance company has failed to provide you with a settlement offer, or if you have a question whether the offer is fair be sure to contact an Illinois Work Comp attorney immediately.

Many work comp insurance companies will try to take advantage of an injured worker.

It pays to have someone on your side.

A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer is not paid until you are paid.
