The injured officer has two potential cases. A workers’ compensation claim for his injury and a negligence lawsuit against the driver. A problem may result if the driver has no automobile insurance coverage. It may be difficult to collect on any judgment with a person who does not have any insurance.

Illinois Workers’ Compensation Help

Here are some tips to keep you out of trouble and increase the settlement value of your Illinois Workmans’ Compensation case.

Make sure that you file an accident report as soon as possible after your injury.

This prevents the insurance company from arguing that you were injured at home or somewhere off the job.

Make sure that you go to a doctor immediately after your injury.

You do not want the insurance company to claim that your injury was minor or not related to work because you waited several days to see a doctor.

Make sure that you tell the doctor, nurse, and receptionist that you are seeking treatment because of a work injury.

Do not allow the insurance company to claim that your injury is not related to work because you failed  to provide a work related injury history to your medical providers.

Make sure that you tell the doctor and nurse about all of your work related injuries such as neck and shoulder and low back conditions.

Some insurance companies will deny claims that are not clear cut and try to argue that delayed medical treatment for separate parts of the body is proof the injury is not related to a work accident.

Speak with an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyer early in the process so that you do not make mistakes that will damage the value of your settlement.
