Workers' Compensation Claims
Illinois law provides workers' compensation funds for medical care following an on-the-job injury. However, these claims are frequently denied. Review boards may decide that your work-related shoulder injury is actually a pre-existing condition. You do not have to just accept a denial. With the help of the lawyers at Salvi & Maher, it may be possible to appeal the claim, have the denial overturned and stabilize your financial future.
Third Party Claims
A work-related shoulder injury may not be entirely the fault of your employer. A third party may also be liable for what has taken place. If another party is found to be partially responsible for your injuries, you may be able to secure additional financial compensation from, for example, the manufacturer of a defective product, the manager of negligently-maintained property or the provider of shoddy services to the site. Claims such as these can be hugely beneficial in helping you cover injury-related costs that exceed your workers' compensation benefits.
