What Should I Do If I Am Injured On The Job?

Notify your employer and file an incident report.

Get an aggressive, qualified attorney to represent you.

Bring the claim before the appropriate administrative body. According to Illinois law, you may not bring a lawsuit in circuit court.

Is My Injury Covered By Workers' Comp

An injury falls under workers’ compensation if the injury occurs during the course of employment. Work-sponsored events qualify if attendance is mandatory.

Employment must expose the claimant to a greater risk than what is faced by the general public.

What Workers' Comp Benefits Are Available?

If you are eligible, your benefits may include:

  • Temporary Total Disability Benefits (TTD)
  • Medical Benefits
  • Permanent Partial Disability Benefits (PPD)
  • Permanent Total Disability
  • Vocational Rehabilitation
  • Death Benefits

What If I Get Fired Because I Filed A Workers' Comp Claim?

This is called retaliatory discharge. It is illegal. An employer is not allowed to fire you for seeking a legitimate benefit. If you believe you have been terminated unfairly, let us know. We can represent you and help you get the benefits to which you are entitled.

Remember, when you bring a workers’ compensation claim, you are not suing your employer — you are seeking benefits for which your employer has insurance. If you have any questions, call Franks & Rechenberg, P.C. We can walk you through the workers’ comp system and explain what kinds of workers’ comp benefits are available to you.
