The law is often not well known or publicized.
Let’s face it the law is complicated and people have much more on their mind with daily obligations and crises.
Most people are only injured once in their work career so it is not well known what benefits you are entitled to.
Some Workers’ Compensation Insurance Companies know this and take advantage of people.
In Illinois when you are injured on the job you are entitled to time off work pay, paid medical bills and money for the injury itself.
The settlement is not paid until the end of the case, therefore some insurance companies will hope that the injured worker forgets or is unaware of this right.
Do not let this happen to you.
Make sure to contact a lawyer right away if you are not being paid.
In Illinois a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer is not paid until the end of the case when you are paid.
