Advocates For Injured Workers

Find The Answers You Need To These Common Workers’ Comp Questions

At The Law Office of Raymond L. Asher, Ltd, we know that navigating the complexities of workers’ compensation can often be as daunting as dealing with the injury itself. You may have many questions, and we are here to provide the clear, concise answers you need. With our collective experience, we understand your concerns and uncertainties. We offer dedicated guidance that can help illuminate your path forward.

Here are some of the most common ones we hear from our clients:

Can I appeal a denied workers’ compensation claim?

In most situations, you can. It’s common to have your initial request rejected. Your employer or insurer potentially denied your claim because it didn’t have enough information or because the world can be an unfair place sometimes.

Either way, we can help you appeal your case so you can continue seeking the compensation and benefits you deserve. Contact us ASAP so we can start working on your appeal today.

What if my doctor disagrees with my employer’s doctor’s assessment?

This happens more often than you would think. Under Illinois law, you can get your workers’ comp evaluation from your doctor. However, your employer may also require you to get their doctor’s assessment. If the two provide conflicting assessments, you may feel like you’ve reached an impasse.

We can help navigate these matters when they become complicated.

If I work multiple jobs, can I still file a workers’ comp claim if I suffer an injury at one of them?

Yes, you can. However, your ability to work both jobs can depend on how your injury affects your ability to do both jobs. For example, if you get hurt at job #1 but your injury doesn’t prevent you from doing job #2, you can seek wage and medical benefits from job #1.

When should I contact a workers’ compensation attorney?

Immediately. The earlier you contact a lawyer, the better. You can have a lot easier time obtaining benefits if you have the guidance and support of experienced Illinois workers’ comp counsel.

When you come to us, we won’t pass on your case to someone else. You’ll work directly with us, and we will provide you with the dedicated care and attention you deserve. We’ll focus on getting the medical care you need quickly. Let us manage the paperwork and deadlines; you focus on recovering.
