Experienced Chicago Attorneys Getting Injured Workers Compensation

If you’re hurt at work, you can be put into a financially disastrous situation. Expensive medical bills and lost wages can make it harder for you to get well. A workers’ compensation attorney can help individuals who are seeking compensation for their on-the-job injuries. You’re entitled to compensation for your injuries. Shouldn’t you get everything that you deserve?

No One Expects to Get Hurt

When you go to work, you don’t expect to get hurt on the job. Work injuries can happen even with the most careful and cautious employees. Yet, even with the right non-slip shoes, slip and falls still happen in restaurants and retail environments. Professional cooks and servers still suffer from burns and cuts while on the job. Construction workers still face danger every day on the job site. Regardless of your industry, the possibility of you getting injured at work is very, very real.

If you’re hurt on the job, you need a workers’ compensation attorney to help you seek compensation for your injuries. An attorney can help answer your questions and review your case to help you determine what you’re entitled to receive under the law.

Workers’ Compensation Is a Safety Net

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that is provided to workers at no charge. It is required by every state for most employers. Workers who are injured on the job file a claim and they are entitled to benefits within the program. It is important to note that not all workers will qualify for every benefit.

Common benefits include:

  • Access to medical care at no charge to you. This may include doctor’s visits, therapy, surgery, MRIs, X-rays, prescriptions, crutches, and more. You also have the right to see your own doctor. However, you may have to pay out of pocket for that. If so, make sure that you keep your receipts because you may be entitled to reimbursement. This is probably the best-known benefit of workers’ compensation, but even if you have health insurance, it is extremely important. Health insurance is helpful, but you may have to meet high deductibles or pay copayments. With workers’ compensation, the various medical treatments you require would not cost you anything out of pocket.
  • Payment of partial wages is another benefit that you may be entitled to receive. If your injury is so severe that you’re unable to work either temporarily or permanently, you may be entitled to receive temporary or permanent payment of some of your lost wages. This is extremely important to help keep families from suffering the financial devastation of being unable to work.
  • If you won’t be able to return to your original line of work, you may qualify to receive job training through workers’ compensation. This can help train you in a new line of work so that you can re-enter the workforce after you recover.

Seeking Compensation? Here’s What You Need to Know

If you’re seeking compensation through workers’ compensation, there are some things you should know. Workers’ compensation is different in each state. This is one reason why you need to rely on a workers’ compensation attorney. You may be entitled to more than just having your medical bills paid. You may also be entitled to lost wages.

If you are hurt at work, do not continue to work even if you believe that your injury is minor. Continuing to work can make your injury much worse. If you have a medical emergency, you need to call 911. You are entitled to emergency medical care. Consider filing a workers’ compensation claim right away. Your Human Resources advisor or manager can help you. They can also provide you with a list of medical facilities that can treat you for no charge.

It’s of vital importance that you do not sign anything that is given to you by your employer or by their workers’ compensation adjuster without first calling Malman Law. The document could be a settlement agreement. You should get a workers’ compensation attorney who can look at it and let you know whether or not you’re getting everything that you deserve. You don’t want to sign away your rights.
