Panio Law Offices Helps You Understand Illinois Workers' Comp Rules

It is your employer’s responsibility to ensure workplace safety and security. However, accidents still happen. In the state of Illinois, workers’ compensation laws such as the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act protect employees in the event that they suffer injury on the job.

Panio Law Offices understands that these laws require your employer to provide you with necessary medical care throughout your recovery, which is why your employer must have workers’ compensation insurance. Despite these laws, insurance companies are notorious for trying to get away without covering your full expenses.

What Do Workers' Comp Attorneys Do?

A workers' compensation lawyer's responsibility is to be by their client's side through the duration of the claims process. Workers' comp attorneys not only help their clients file claims but they will also help fight for fair compensation for leaves of absence from work and potential medical expenses involved.

How to File a Workers Comp Claim in Illinois

What many people don’t realize about workers’ compensation claims is that you will be seeking compensation from your employer’s insurance company, and not your employer directly. This makes matters complicated and knowing how to proceed can seem nebulous and confusing. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer will be able to guide you throughout this process and will be able to fight aggressively for your rights.

Another misunderstanding about workers’ compensation arises from people mistakenly thinking that they don’t qualify for workers’ compensation even when their injuries are work-related. For example, some people believe that because they work in an office, they don’t have workers’ compensation benefits, so they cannot seek the compensation they are entitled to.

Workers’ compensation can be sought in a variety of situations and a variety of industries, including:

  • Agricultural industry injuries
  • Airline worker injuries
  • Construction worker injuries
  • Factory worker injuries
  • Food service industry injuries
  • Office worker injuries
  • Railroad worker injuries
  • Retail worker injuries
  • Shipping and trucking worker injuries
  • Warehouse worker injuries

It is important that you seek workers’ compensation benefits when you are injured on the job. In addition to your immediate treatment expenses, workers’ compensation can also help you cover some of the more hidden costs of an injury, including lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, long-term care costs, permanent disability costs, and more.
