If you have been hurt in a workplace accident, but are having difficulty getting workers’ compensation, we can Help!
A Chicago workers’ compensation attorney can help you with your initial filing by making sure you have assembled all necessary documentation, filled out the paperwork properly, and claimed all the compensation you are entitled to. This will increase the likelihood that your claim will be settled quickly without dispute, and may lead to increased compensation.
Evaluating Settlement Offers
Sometimes your employer or their insurance company may not pay your claim exactly as filed. They may offer you a settlement of a lower amount, and it can be hard to decide whether you should take that settlement or pursue additional action, such as arbitration. We can evaluate the settlement offer and tell you the potential costs in time and money it may cost you to get a better settlement so you can decide whether to take the settlement or not.
Presenting Your Claim to Arbitrators and Panels
If you decide not to take settlement offers, you will have to present your case and its merits to arbitrators and commissioners at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. Your workers’ compensation attorney can help you present your case to reduce the risk that it may be dismissed or decided against you.
A workers’ compensation attorney can help you improve the odds of success for your claim, reduce the time required to resolve it, and may increase the compensation you receive. For these reasons, you should talk to an attorney about your claim before filing.
