Vocational rehabilitation -- Don't let insurance company say no

Like most people, you probably take great pride in a job that you do well, and anything that affects your ability to do so can be devastating. A workplace injury can derail your professional trajectory on top of compromising your physical and mental health. For many in Illinois, vocational rehabilitation through workers' compensation is key to future success.

After an injury, it is not always clear whether you will be able to return to your previous job. You might hope that after successful medical treatment you will go back to your former position, but your injuries may be too extensive for that to be possible. In such situations, employers and workers' compensation insurance companies are supposed to provide vocational rehabilitation. This provides training, compensation and transitionary help as victims begin a career in a new field or position.

Unfortunately, many insurance companies care more about their bottom line than the injured workers they are supposed to be helping. While legally required to provide this invaluable training, most insurance providers choose to save money instead of providing necessary training. You could be stuck in a difficult position without the necessary vocational rehabilitation.

If you are injured on the job and unable to return to the same field you were previously employed in, workers' compensation benefits should provide vocational rehabilitation. You might feel overwhelmed and confused if the insurance company denies you these benefits, but you are not without options. Vigorous representation from an experienced Illinois counsel is often the most effective approach to getting the benefits you deserve.
