Do Your Work Comp Case a Big Favor

What is the best way to insure that you will recover the maximum money in your Illinois Workers’ Compensation case?

Make a clear, straight forward explanation of your work injury to the Doctor.

For instance, I tripped over a shovel at work and twisted my right knee. It popped and there was immediate pain.

Failure to explain clearly how your injury happened and that it happened at work will cause you all kinds of problems and may even result in the loss of your case.
