Do I Have a Workers’ Comp Case?

Knowledgeable Illinois Attorneys Determine Whether You Have a Strong Workers’ Compensation Case

Studying your situation to find the best course of action

When you’re injured on the job, it can be tough to understand your rights and to determine which steps you should next take. A number of concerns may weight on your mind, including high medical bills, the potential of a long-term disability and lost wages. The attorneys at Boshardy Law Office, P.C. in Springfield, IL know the laws and can determine whether you have a claim, and if so, how you should approach your case.

Specific requirements to qualify for workers’ compensation

Different types of workplace injuries qualify for workers’ compensation. Generally, to be eligible for benefits, your injury must meet the following requirements:

  • Occurred on the job. It must be provable that your injury or condition was caused by an accident at work or is the result of ongoing working conditions, such as repetitive motion or exposure to hazardous materials.
  • Negligence on the part of your employer. The company or a supervisor must have had a reasonable level of responsibility to take action to prevent the injury. If you tripped on an object in a walkway, for example, you may need to argue that the employer was obligated to keep the area free of debris.
  • Demonstrated suffering on your part. In most cases, your injury must be serious enough to result in medical bills and lost income. It may also be possible to seek compensation for pain and suffering.
