Whey you get hurt or injured at work in McHenry or through out the county you are concerned about your paycheck and your families financial well being. Many injured workers report the emergency room treatment is the easiest part of their entire workers compensation case.
When you get home from the hospital you begin to wonder who is going to pay for my medical bills, when do I get my paycheck, will I get fired, who will pay for my surgery if I need more surgery, before you wonder about when are my stiches coming out, and were do I get my prescription for pain pills filled.
Then you get the phone call from the workers compensation claims adjuster telling you what you have to do and when you have to do it. They go on to explain if and when you may get some money and what doctor you must see for treatment. It doesn’t seem fair, and you are correct to think that. You were forced into a fight that you did not start or most times want. What can you do?
The best thing you can do is to learn your rights under the Illinois workers compensation act. Once you learn your rights, you can go about standing up for your self in court.
