Sometimes, people want to try to handle their case themselves. Sometimes, this works out okay. 

But usually, the injured worker ends up with far less money and benefits than they would've gotten if they consulted with experienced workers comp lawyers.

On-the-job injuries are governed under Illinois Worker's Compensation lawThat is a special law that only applies to on-the-job injuries for employees. It doesn't apply to car accidents or any other kind of injuries. Just injuries at work. Just where somebody gets hurt at work.

As a result, cases involving work injuries are completely different than every other kind of case. That also means that the laws and procedures of Workers Compensation cases are completely different than those you would find in, say, a car crash or nursing home abuse case.

That's why it's important to talk to a lawyer who understands the law and the procedural rules which apply to work injury cases.

The other thing to consider here is that as soon as you have an injury on the job, your employer calls their Workers Comp insurance company. The insurance company has lawyers on staff who start defending your case right away.

Insurance companies make money by collecting insurance premiums and then denying claims or limiting what is paid. That means that even if your company is being nice about it, an insurance company is pulling the strings behind the scenes.

Once an insurance company is involved in an injury case, all bets are off. They will do or say anything to reduce what they ultimately have to pay for you.

If your company has a lawyer on their side was being paid for by an insurance company, shouldn't you have a lawyer on your side? Shouldn't you at least talk to a lawyer to know what your rights are?

Fortunately most Chicago Workers Comp lawyers offer a free consultation.  My office is no exception. If you need to talk to a lawyer, you can click the button below and I would be happy to talk to you, 100% for free.
