We Help Injured Workers Pursue Compensation
The Illinois Workers Compensation Program can be difficult to navigate, but the Proline Legal attorneys are prepared to represent you, protect your rights and ensure that you get the benefits to which you are legally entitled.
If you have been hurt in an on-the-job accident or have developed an illness related to your work environment, you may be entitled to compensation through the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Program. Illinois law requires almost all employers to maintain workers’ compensation insurance that will pay employees who get hurt benefits regardless of fault. Unfortunately, many injured workers have difficulty obtaining their much-needed benefits, leaving them to deal with medical expenses that are piling up and an inability to earn money while they recover from their injuries. Fortunately, Proline Legal attorneys are here to help.
Helping Injured Employees Every Step Of The Way
Steve Roach Esquire’s Proline Legal attorneys are committed to helping people who are hurt in workplace accidents obtain their rightful benefits as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Some of the specific ways that we can help you include the following:
- Discuss your case with you and let you know whether your injury or illness qualifies as work-related.
- Fill out the paperwork associated with starting the claims process.
- Handle an internal appeal should the insurance company deny your initial claim.
- If your employer’s insurance company has denied your claim, represent you in a hearing before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission.
- File a lawsuit on your behalf in the appropriate court.
While it is certainly true that some job environments put workers at significantly greater risk for injury than others, no employee is at zero risk for work injuries. In fact, even office workers in the most seemingly safe environments are often at risk for repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or back injuries.
