Workers’ Compensation

Workers Compensation Attorney Serving the Quincy, IL, Area

Representing injured workers throughout Illinois

Your rights as an injured worker are established by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act. The Springfield workers’ compensation lawyers at Boshardy Law Office, P.C. put their skills and experience to work for you with a goal of obtaining the maximum benefits available under this law.

You are entitled to temporary disability payments and medical treatment to help you recover from your injury

When you are injured on the job, your physical condition may prevent you from working. You are entitled to be compensated for 100 percent of the costs of your medical treatment required to recover from your injuries. Workers’ compensation insurance companies routinely deny medical care, or authorization for medical care, prolonging your disability. The lawyers at Boshardy Law Office, P.C. aggressively fight to secure the medical treatment recommended by your doctors.

You are entitled to receive temporary total disability (TTD) benefits while you are recovering from your injury. By law, your employer must pay you two-thirds of your wages while you are disabled. These benefits are not taxed. However, these benefits are often wrongly denied by workers’ compensation insurance companies.

Workers’ compensation insurance companies routinely fail to pay these benefits on time — or at all. And they know that you need the money and that withholding it weakens your ability to fight back. You do not have to be completely disabled to receive TTD payments. If you are placed on light duty by your doctor as a result of your work injury, and the employer cannot provide or refuses to provide light-duty work, you are entitled to claim TTD payments.

You need a skilled workers’ compensation attorney on your side to fight for you. Boshardy Law Office, P.C. works aggressively with you to ensure that you receive the medical care and disability benefits you require.
