Work Injury Lawyer in Chicago

What should a person do if you injured at the workplace? Many businesses have specific programs aimed to avoid work related injuries of their employees. Safe work practices create a safe working environment for the workers. If once an accident happens, you are not doing yourself or your employer any favors by not wanting it to report it.

If you suffer an injury while working, one of the most important things you can do is to report it. When an accident is not reported, an employer can simply deny you medical treatments and benefits for missed time from work. Reporting an accident the right way will prevent many potential problems in the future.

At Walner Law we don’t work for the money, we work for you. What matters to us is not the big settlement we win, but how to maximize the amount you can take home so that your family is taken care of while you are out of work.

If you become injured at work in Illinois, under the state’s Workers’ Compensation Act, you can collect compensation while you are unable to work. The Act forces you to give up your right to sue your employer, but you are entitled to collect compensation without having to prove fault.
