Workplace injuries and choice of doctors in Chicago

Suffering an on-the-job injury may be a serious blow, depending on the specifics of the injury itself and the treatment necessary to address it. While the victim may feel some relief that the injury occurred at work — and thus qualifies for workers' compensation — the approved doctor and treatment protocol may fall far from the provider and treatment plan preferred by the victim.

What does vocational rehabilitation include?

When a worker suffers a job-related injury, his or her employer may be on the hook for several different kinds of care through workers' compensation. One of the most commonly misunderstood aspects of workers' compensation claims are the opportunities a worker may have to use vocational rehabilitation if the injury significantly affects the worker's ability to perform one's job.

Company time and car accidents

For many people, driving is part of their job, in some form or another. Whether a worker experiences a car accident in a company vehicle or in their own vehicle or some other vehicle, the employer often bears liability for the accident, as long as the victim meets the appropriate standards.

4 ways your hard hat protects you

A hit to the head is never a pleasant experience. However, when it involves a falling object at a Wheaton construction site, such a hit can cause some serious damage. This is one of the main reasons why wearing a hard hat is a must. While you may think it is inconvenient to constantly wear a hard hat while you are on the job, the reality is that wearing it could save your life.

What are my rights to rehabilitation after a workplace injury?

When a worker suffers an injury on the job, he or she usually files a workers' compensation claim. This allows the employee to receive appropriate medical care and possibly some other compensation for lost income or permanent injury. After treatment is completed, the employee can return to work.

Does a mild brain injury justify workers’ compensation?

Any time that a person receives a blow to the head, there is a possibility that he or she may receive a brain injury. This can take many forms, and the symptoms may vary greatly from person to person. While mild traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) commonly occur in contact sports or car accidents, many types of workplace accidents can lead to a head injury.

Get everything you deserve from workers’ compensation

When you file a claim with your employer's workers' compensation, you might assume that you can trust the terms the insurer offers because the coverage is there to protect you. Unfortunately, protecting you and providing for your recovery in the wake of an on-the-job injury is often not the highest priority for your employer's insurer.
