Under Illinois and federal law, manufacturing companies that own and operate factories are subject to numerous safety guidelines designed to protect their employees from serious injuries. While some manufacturing companies (albeit a very small portion) strictly monitor and enforce best practices for worker safety, far too many factory workers are still getting hurt on the job. The fact of the matter is that factories are simply dangerous places to work.
Recognizing the risks factory workers face on a daily basis, the Illinois workers’ compensation system provides “no-fault” benefits to injured employees. This means that you do not need to prove your employer was negligent or violated safety laws in order to receive benefits. As long as you qualify and don’t make any mistakes that could jeopardize your claim, you will be entitled to workers’ compensation.
While workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, this does not mean that it is going to be easy to win the benefits you deserve. To keep their insurance costs down, many companies vigorously fight their employees’ claims. The insurance companies will fight as well, and they will find any excuse they can to avoid paying you. Even simple mistakes like failing to provide proper notice to your employer can result in a reduction, delay, or denial of benefits. To avoid these mistakes, let Malman Law help you file for workers’ compensation.
Sometimes, workers do everything right and their employers still deny their claims. If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, your case is not over. However, in order to protect your rights, it will be important to hire an attorney right away.
