Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance. It is required for most employers in the State of Illinois. Workers’ comp is designed to be a safety net for injured workers. If you are hurt while on the job in the City of Chicago, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim.
Workers’ compensation can help you with:
There are other benefits as well. However, you must file a claim in order to receive benefits. Yet, all too often when people file workers’ compensation claims, they don’t receive the benefits that they deserve. If you’re hurt on the job in Chicago and need to file a workers’ compensation claim, you should call Malman Law. We can answer any questions you have about workers’ compensation. We can also help you get the benefits that you deserve. If you were hurt during your shift at work, don’t wait. Call or contact us now to schedule your free consultation.
Because of changes in Illinois workers’ compensation laws, you must be extremely careful in deciding whether you will choose to see your own doctor or see the company doctor. You no longer have the right to choose two doctors of your own if your employer provides and notifies you of their Preferred Provider Program. If you still elect to see a different provider, you may be stuck with paying your own expenses for your on-the-job-injury.
You may have the option to elect one doctor of your own choosing even if your employer has a Preferred Provider Program. That doctor may refer you to another doctor if it is reasonable and necessary to your recovery.
If you have questions about your rights as an injured employee, you should contact Malman Law right away. Recent changes in the law mean that your rights have changed. In order to protect your rights, you should rely on an experienced team of workers’ compensation lawyers. Malman Law provides free initial consultations for people who are hurt on the job. Call us now to book your free consultation.
When there is a dispute related to workers’ compensation, it is handled by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission through arbitration. However, to protect your rights from the very beginning, you should hire a workers’ compensation attorney. Preparing for disagreements, court, or even arbitration begins from the same day that you are hurt.
Arbitration is similar to court in that evidence will be presented by attorneys. Although a judge does not oversee arbitration, the final decision is legally binding. It can take months before your case is heard. In the event that you are not happy with the decision, you may be eligible to appeal. The appeal can take almost two years to be heard.
To protect your legal rights as an injured worker, you should talk with Malman Law as soon as possible after you’re hurt on the job. Our team of experts can advocate on your behalf to help you get the benefits that you deserve, and we can also help you through the arbitration process. Call us to schedule your free initial consultation.
Getting hurt at work can be scary. Do not continue to work if you’ve been hurt on the job. Continuing to work can make your injury worse. You should immediately inform your supervisor or manager about your injury. Ask your supervisor or HR rep how you can file a workers’ compensation claim. They will also be able to inform you on your options for medical care. If you have a medical emergency, call 911 and get help. Then, contact Malman Law.
Although workers’ compensation was designed to protect workers like you who get hurt on the job, the insurance company will often try to pay you as little as possible. They may even try to get you to sign a settlement agreement. Don’t sign anything without first talking to a lawyer. Otherwise, you may sign away your legal rights.
Malman Law provides legal representation for injured workers. We have more than 25 years of experience. We provide free initial consultations. Call now to schedule your appointment and to learn how we can help you protect your legal rights.
