Workers' Compensation

Helping You File a Claim after an On-the-Job Injury

An insurance claim formJust as federal laws regulate safe working conditions, there are laws designed to provide compensation to employees who injure themselves on the job. Administered through a state-mandated system, workers’ compensation insurance covers bills and expenses incurred by an injured employee during his or her recovery from a workplace accident. When filing a workers’ compensation claim, it’s best to seek the advice of a seasoned attorney to ensure you receive the appropriate benefits. If you’ve been injured on the job, contact the workers’ compensation attorneys of Rubin & Machado, serving Chicago and surrounding areas. During a personal consultation, we will review your case for free and determine whether you are eligible to receive compensation.

About Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Workers’ compensation benefits are extended to employees who are injured in a workplace accident, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. An employee’s eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits depends on whether he or she can prove the injury occurred: 1) while working; and 2) as a result of performing a job-related duty or responsibility. The injury does not necessarily need to have occurred during normal work hours. By accepting these benefits, the employee forfeits his or her right to sue the employer for damages.

Workplace injuries generally arise from:

For example, a construction worker who falls from some scaffolding on a construction site and injures his spinal cord would qualify for workers’ compensation benefits because his job was the only reason he was on the scaffolding. In other words, had he not been at work, he would not have sustained the injury.

Why Do I Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

If you have recently been injured at work, or you have already filed a workers’ compensation claim that was denied, we encourage you to enlist the services of the workers’ compensation attorneys at our Chicago firm. Using our thorough knowledge of workers’ compensation laws, our attorneys can navigate through the complexities of the system to recover the full amount of benefits to which you are justly entitled. If you have filed a claim that was denied, or you were offered an amount that you believe is too low, our attorneys can help you file an appeal and fight for a fair settlement. Your settlement can help to cover medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation or treatment, lost wages, and other expenses and losses you have incurred as a result of your injury.
