You need experienced legal guidance if you have not received your rightful benefits after becoming injured at work.

What Is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
Most businesses in Illinois must buy workers’ compensation insurance. If you work for one of these insured businesses and are hurt, then the insurance should cover your injuries and allow you to get medical treatment. Some companies ignore their responsibility to buy this insurance, which can have severe repercussions for hurt workers. Erin can help you if your employer has failed to buy workers’ compensation insurance or if they are one of the few businesses exempt from buying insurance. She will work to show your employer’s responsibility and help you obtain your deserved benefits.
