What You Should Know Before Filing for Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ Compensation is a government program created to provide benefits to those injured on the job or made ill due to the workplace. Filing for Workers’ Compensation is no easy task. There is a great deal of paperwork and deadlines must be met. If there is one error in the forms you fill out or one deadline is missed, you will be denied claims. For this reason, we highly suggest that if you are injured on the job, you seek out the assistance of an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney in the Chicago area such as the ones at Harvey L.
