An injury at work can put you and your family in a difficult situation both financially and emotionally. There are many ways your employer and their insurance provider can prevent you from receiving any or all of your workers' compensation benefits. You need our experienced injury lawyer in Chicago to guide you through this confusing process, especially if your injuries were severe and have stopped you from returning to work.
You may think that you can represent yourself on behalf of your workers' compensation case, but your employer and their insurance most likely do not have your best interest in mind. The system in place for claims like these requires detailed knowledge of workers' compensation law. We know how to gather all relevant medical information and can fight for you to recover the financial costs of your injuries and lost wages.
The injury lawyers at Sklare Law Group, LTD. are compassionate and driven to get you the best possible settlement for your case. If you've experienced any of these issues with your claim, contact our attorneys in Chicago immediately:
- Your employer or insurance provider has denied that you were injured at work, rejected your claim or refused to issue your benefits on time or in full.
- Your settlement amount does not cover the cost of your injuries and loss of income.
- Your injuries have left you unable to work your current job or any job in the future.
- You have been discriminated at work for filing a workers' compensation claim.
You may also have a third-party claim if your injuries resulted from the negligence of someone outside of your company. In this case, you could receive settlements from a personal injury claim and a workers' compensation claim.
