Workers' compensation attainable after IL work injury

The average person enters the work-force at or around the age of 18. If a person works until the average retirement age, they will have spent around 50 years of their life at work. Within this scope of time, it isn't unreasonable to think that a person may be injured at some point, while working on the job. Certain professions are more injury-prone than others, but all could qualify for benefits under workers' compensation.

Workers' compensation is in place to protect workers who have fallen ill, or have become injured, and thus are unable to work for a short or long-period of time. Filing for workers' compensation the first time around isn't always enough to guarantee that the injured worker will receive benefits. Sometimes an injured worker has to deal with a denied claim, on top of their injury issues.

At Brady & Jensen, we have seen many different kinds of workers' compensation claims. Things like back injuries, neck injuries and other debilitating injuries and illnesses may render a worker with a short-term disability, a long-term disability or permanent disability. Whatever the level of disability, workers' compensation is supposed to help offset the expenses that come with lost wages and medical expenses after work injury.

Sometimes the employer will claim that the worker's injury didn't happen at work. All-the-while, the worker knows how they came to suffer from their debilitating injury or illness. Whatever the circumstances, we know how to approach workers' compensation cases to get the best outcome for our clients. Our website has information for people who need help with their workers' compensation claims.
