The Complexities of Illinois Workers' Comp Law
Although Illinois law usually pays for medical treatment needed because of a workplace injury, claims are still frequently denied. There are review boards, hearings, and administrative deadlines, which complicate the process. If you cannot work as the result of an on-the-job injury, do not leave your financial future to chance. Contact a workers' compensation lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to navigate the Illinois workers' compensation system. We will work to get you the full compensation provided by law.
Are you Eligible to File a Workers' Compensation Claim?
If you have been injured in any way in the course of your employment, you are eligible to file a workers compensation claim. If you slipped on the ice in the company parking lot, developed carpal tunnel syndrome or other repetitive stress injuries, suffered a back injury at work or other type of injury at your job, the experienced injury lawyers at Salvi & Maher can help you obtain the compensation provided by law for medical bills.
Third Party Claims in Lake County and DuPage County
In addition to filing a workers' compensation claim under Illinois law, you may also be able to file a third party claim if another party can be held liable for your work related injuries. For example, if you fell from improperly installed scaffolding, the builder of the scaffolding, rather than your employer, could be found liable for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost income, and costs not covered by workers comp. Our attorneys are highly experienced with third party claims. We will examine your case to see whether you are eligible to file a third party claim in addition to a workers' compensation claim.
