Read About Workers’ Compensation
The state of Illinois has laws to protect workers who fall victim to any sort of mishaps at their work place. Workers’ compensation, sometimes called workman’s comp, is something your employer is required to provide. The process begins when you are injured, as your employer is required to report all workplace injuries. Anybody who is injured while working can benefit from the Illinois Workers Compensation Act, until he or she recovers.
Under the current Illinois Workers Compensation program, an employer is obligated to provide medical care and pay for all mandatory visits to a doctor. There may be some debates as to how much medical care is really needed and how much medical care an employer must provide. That is where an aggressive and experienced attorney comes in handy. When we take legal action, it’s not against your employer. It’s against your employer’s workers compensation insurance company. All we want is to get the insurance company to do what they are supposed to — provide you the financial support you need after a workplace accident.
