Illinois Work Comp Tip

Workers’ Compensation Insurance companies are looking for ways to deny your claim.

Do not make it easy for them.

When you are hurt at work make sure to go to the doctor as soon as possible and explain how it happened at work.

Some people want to tough it out, but this only makes it difficult for you in the long run.

If you are not seriously injured the doctor will examine you and return you to work.

If you are injured the doctor will document it and set up a treatment plan for you.

Going to the doctor quickly after your work injury prevents the insurance company from disputing your Work Comp claim and keeps your medical benefits and off work pay going.

Remember an Illinois Workers’ Compensation lawyer is not paid until you get money at the end of your case.

Union Workers get your Work Comp Contracts reviewed before you Settle

Many people sign their Illinois Workers’ Compensation settlement contracts without understanding what it means for them or the future.

I have seen some settlement contracts that will hurt injured union workers in several ways.

Insurance companies want injured workers to waive their rights to future medical payments.

Insurance companies want injured workers to sign contracts that will not cover unpaid injury related medical bills.

Insurance companies want injured workers to sign contracts that will not pay the full value of the injury claim

Insurance companies do not care if injured workers are receiving Social Security Disability benefits or may receive them in the future.

Insurance companies want injured workers to sign contracts before they have reached maximum medical improvement.

Do not sign Illinois Workers’ Compensation settlement contracts until you have an experienced Illinois Work Comp Attorney review them with you.
