What if Insurance Denies My Work Comp Claim?

Those Workers’ Compensation insurance companies will do the darnedest things.

Someone called our law office today and said that his hand was broken while working on a machine at the job site. He related that the plant nurse told him it was not a workers’ compensation injury.

Illinois law is clear that this injury is compensable.

The injured worker is entitled to medical treatment, time off work pay, and a settlement at the end of the case.

Just because a supervisor, nurse, or insurance company adjuster tells you that a claim is denied or not work related does not mean it is true.

Make sure to speak with an Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney immediately to protect your interests.

It does not cost any upfront money to speak with an Illinois work comp lawyer. All fees are limited to 20 percent of recovery at the end of the case.
