Illinois Work Injury Tips

You must have the correct mindset to protect your rights when you are injured on the job.

Illinois Workers’ Compensation insurance companies have systems set up and a number of attorneys working for them to make sure that they do not pay you very much money when you are hurt at work.

You must develop the proper view of the insurance company and what you need to do to protect your rights.

Once you suffer a work injury in Illinois it is really a full time job for you to make sure that you get proper medical treatment, you are paid while off work, and get a fair settlement once your medical treatment is completed.

This includes keeping good records, telling your doctors details of your injuries and accident and your responses to the medical treatment, keeping your employer informed of the accident and off work status.

You must also know when you entitled to a settlement offer and whether it is fair.

You should contact an Illinois Work Comp Attorney to guide and help you. You can do this without paying any upfront fees. Illinois law allows you to hire a Workers’ Compensation lawyer and not pay them until the end of the case from your settlement proceeds.
