Workplace injuries can be devastating to a worker and his or her family. Injuries can involve loss of income, significant medical treatment, permanent disability and possibly the loss of occupation. While the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act provides compensation for lost wages, medical treatment and disability awards, employers and their insurers have become more and more aggressive in denying claims.
Moreover, there have been recent significant changes to the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act that have adversely affected the rights of injured workers. In today's adverse workers climate, it is imperative to have aggressive, experienced workers' compensation attorneys to fight for your rights.
