Sustaining a work-related injury or illness can be the start of a long, frustrating journey. You may be struggling with pain, going to medical appointments and therapies, and trying your best to heal. At the same time, you are missing hours at work and may not even be able to return to your job at all. The last thing you want to worry about during this already stressful time is how you will pay for your medical bills and your cost of living while you are not working. This is what workers’ compensation benefits were designed for, but so often, they are difficult for employees to get approved. This is where experienced Maywood workers’ compensation lawyers can join you in your journey and make it less burdensome.
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act has outlined some very specific laws when it comes to workers’ compensation insurance and employees. Under these laws, injured workers are entitled to:
If you do not understand how these laws apply to you or believe that you are not getting what you are entitled to, it is time to contact Maywood workers’ compensation attorneys who can help.
Being hurt on the job is not something anyone plans on happening. As such, many employees are not aware of the requirements put in place by their employer or the law for receiving workers’ compensation benefits. If you do not notify your employer of your injury within a specified time period or complete the right forms, your claim could be denied. As soon as possible after your injury, you should contact an attorney. They can help you ensure from the beginning that you are doing everything you can to make your workers’ compensation claim a successful one.
Workers’ compensation insurance is necessary to help injured workers pay their medical bills and ensure that their standard costs of living are paid. Struggling to receive your benefits or having your claim denied can compound an already overwhelming situation. Many injured employees seek the assistance of Maywood workers’ compensation attorneys to get the best possible outcome in their workers’ compensation claims. Contact The Law Offices of Thomas A.
