If you’re a resident of Illinois, you’re entitled to workmans compensation if you suffer a work related illness or injury. It’s the law. The compensation you’re entitled to helps bridge the financial gap created while you’re out of work until you’re healthy again and ready to rejoin the workforce. Even though every worker in Illinois is entitled to workmans compensation, there are times one has to fight to get the benefits the law guarantees. Disagreements can arise as to whether or not an injury was one that made it necessary to leave the workplace. There can also be disagreements as to whether or not an individual is eligible to receive compensation. It would be nice if every time someone is injured, workmans compensation benefits were readily and easily accessible, but that’s not always the case.
The types of on the job incidents can vary widely. Workmans compensation legal support can often be a welcome source of assistance should questions arise as to whether one is eligible to receive certain benefits.
* Sometimes, the extent of an injury, what caused an injury, or the source of an occupational disease may not always be clear. It can therefore at times become a somewhat complicated process to file a claim that accurately identifies the benefits one is entitled to.
* Insurance companies will at times try to convince claimants to accept a lower settlement than one is actually entitled to, a settlement that won’t cover all of the expenses incurred because of an accident or illness.
* There are a number of workers compensation benefits one is eligible for under the law. The full extent of these benefits is not always well understood by the person filing a claim.
If you’re having a problem dealing with an insurance company, if you’re finding it difficult to accurately state the extent of your injury, or you’re not sure how much coverage you’re entitled to, you may need to seek outside outside assistance. For example, determining whether you are entitled to medical expenses, temporary total or partial disability compensation, rehabilitation, or permanent disability compensation can at times be a formidable task. And situations can arise in which your eligibility for one or more of the benefits may be questioned.
There can be times when a public official or an insurance representative may refuse to validate your claim. Or, there may be times when you find it difficult to submit a claim properly.
