Have you been injured on the job? The emotional toll can be just as draining as the pain from your injuries; supervisors and co-workers turning on you, insurance adjusters refusing to pay your benefits, nurse case managers deciding where you can and cannot be treated, and company clinics telling you that there is no reason for you to have pain. Your employer has big business on their side with huge insurance conglomerates looking for any chance to reject your claim, and even has the ear of the legislature. Do you have anyone on your side?
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act offers three fundamental benefits to injured workers:
1) Choice of medical provider
2) Payment in the form of temporary total disability if you are unable to work due to your injury
3) A lump sum payment if you sustained permanent disability
The Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Reform Act of 2013 streamlines the workers’ compensation claim process while providing better protection and faster service to injured employees.
At The Vrdolyak Law Group, we fight against the powerful employers and insurance companies to ensure that injured workers receive the benefits they’re entitled to. With all of the requirements to ensure a compensable workers’ compensation case, you need an expert in your corner.
