Why Do I Need a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
In the aftermath of a workplace accident, you might find yourself thinking that you can navigate the Illinois’ workers’ compensation system quite easily. However, it’s vital that you have our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers on your side as you pursue your benefits.
The state’s workers’ comp system is designed to protect you and your rights, but it doesn’t always work this way in practice. The system can seem rather byzantine if you’re unfamiliar with it, and the paperwork demands are significant.
Our workers’ compensation lawyers can handle all of the complicated, tedious tasks associated with a workers’ comp claim. We’ll make sure all of your paperwork is filled out properly and that you have all the appropriate documentation.
Furthermore, we can help if your initial claim is denied. The state provides an appeals process for those who have received denials. This process can go through multiple steps all the way up to the state Supreme Court. Our attorneys understand the process and how to fight for a client with a denied claim.
If you’ve been the victim of a workplace accident in Illinois, you should speak to our workers’ compensation attorneys as soon as possible. Please contact Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd.., for a free consultation.
