Oglesby, Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney

When someone is injured on the job, they will usually need to file a workers’ compensation claim. In Illinois, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance to ensure workers are protected if they have a work accident. Employees who have a compensable work accident may be entitled to three basic forms of workers’ compensation benefits:

  • Payments for medical bills
  • Payment or temporary total disability benefits for time missed from work
  • Permanency award

Reliable Work Injury Lawyer in Oglesby

If you were injured at work, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. To receive benefits, you often must file a claim in order to receive them. Because navigating workers’ compensation law can be difficult, and sometimes injured employees can have problems getting the benefits they are entitled to, it is important to consult a trustworthy workers’ compensation lawyer in Oglesby, IL.

Attorney Mark M. Wilson is available to help residents of Oglesby and surrounding areas with professional legal advice and expertise. As an active member of the Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Association, he has many years of experience successfully representing individuals in workers’ compensation cases.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a specific form of insurance that is meant to protect both workers and their employers when an individual is injured on the job. This insurance covers medical expenses and lost wages for the injured employee, as well as any potential lump sum permanency award. In Illinois, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance.

After suffering an injury at work, an employee often must file a claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commision seeking benefits to cover their medical treatment, lost wages, and a permanency award when applicable. Benefits may also cover disability rehabilitation and job training fees.

Why You Should Contact a Workers’ Comp Attorney in Oglesby

Although employers should be cooperative when an employee is injured when it comes to handling a workers’ compensation claim, all too often, employers are unwilling to facilitate the claim. This often means that the injured employee will suffer financial loss, if they are unable to return to work.

The best way to avoid this situation is to work with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer before you find yourself struggling to receive the benefits to which you are entitled. Additionally, injured workers often find it difficult navigating the workers’ comp law in Illinois to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

Many injured employees have basic questions about their benefits, such as, “How long can you be on workers’ comp in Illinois?” or, “What does temporary total disability, or ttd mean?” At the Wilson Law Office, we have the knowledge and experience to help clients understand their rights as we work with them to build their case.

Definitely would recommend Mark Wilson to anyone who’s looking for a great lawyer! Very knowledgeable, honest, reliable and compassionate. He helped me win my disability case. He truly cares about you receiving the benefits that you deserve. Is a very good listener and explained the steps of the process leading up to the hearing with the judge. Mark’s assistant Chris was always very courteous, friendly and helpful. After being denied twice on my own Mark was confident he would be able to help me receive my benefits.
