McHenry County Workers Compensation
How to File a Work Injury Case or Workers Comp Claim
Sustaining an injury on the job can be very expensive.
There are doctor’s fees, emergency room fees, lab fees, and hospital room fees — it sometimes seems that there is no end to the medical expenses for which you are responsible.
Even if you have full coverage from a major medical insurer, you may be unable to pay all your medical bills.
In the majority of cases, an injury suffered on the job results in the physical impairment of the injured party so that they are unable to continue to work.
Even a temporary or partial inability to work can be financially devastating, as lost wages and mounting medical bills can quickly put you in debt while you are recovering from your injuries.
If you’ve been injured on the job, you need a personal injury attorney who is experienced in worker’s compensation cases.

The tactics of the insurance company and the complexities of Illinois law may make it very difficult for you to pursue your claim on your own, but an attorney experienced in worker’s comp can navigate the maze of complexity for you and get you the compensation you deserve in Illinois workers comp cases.
