Resolving the most complex workers' compensation claims

Illinois law dictates that any worker who suffers an injury while employed may be entitled to workers' compensation. Workers' compensation is a form of self-insurance for the employer to safeguard the employer in the event of a workplace injury. However, there may be certain cases in which the employee was injured when that employee was not on the work premises. The attorneys at Brady & Jensen, LLP, have represented many workers in similar lawsuits.

There are cases where the dispute arising from a workers' compensation incident may not be about the injury occurring in the workplace. In certain cases, the amount of compensation due to the worker may be the subject of a dispute. Workers' compensation claims may vary largely, depending not only on the seriousness of the injury suffered but also on the part of the body that was injured.

The court might investigate evidence that has been obtained by the attorneys of either party in order to determine the amount of compensation due to the injured worker. The attorneys at Brady & Jensen, LLP, may consult with the employee's colleagues and other eyewitnesses, but also with medical experts in order to prove the connection between the type of employment and the type of injury.

Physical workplace injuries may be easy to prove by the worker. Physical injuries can be proven based on the severity of the particular injury and the connection between the workplace conditions and how that affects the workers' ability to be employed. In certain cases of workers' compensation insurance, the inherent dangers in the workplace can also contribute to psychological trauma.
