Hurt on the Job? We Can Help You with Workers’ Compensation Benefits

An on-the-job injury or illness may qualify you for Workers’ Compensation benefits. However, the Workers’ Compensation process can be very complex so you are strongly encouraged to:

  • Immediately report your injury or illness to your employer.
  • Immediately contact Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer.

What to Do When You’re Hurt at Work

What Health Services are Covered?

If your claim is accepted, the Workers’ Compensation system will pay for all reasonable and necessary medical care, including your doctor, hospital, surgical, pharmacy and other healthcare services. Medical care must be diagnostic, curative or rehabilitative to be considered. These services are provided until your work-related injury has stabilized and reached a point where further recovery is not expected. Even then, you may be entitled to further medical treatment to help control pain and maintain your condition.

You’re Entitled to Lost Wages.

If you can’t work due to your job-related injury or illness, you’re entitled to lost wages, known as “temporary total disability” benefits.

The amount of your benefit check equals 2/3 of your average week wages, and the state of Illinois helps establish minimum benefits, depending on your marital status and number of dependent children. If you’re able to work, but your earning capacity has been reduced, you are entitled to “temporary partial disability” benefits. Wage-loss benefits must be calculated using a complicated formula.

If you’re also receiving or applying for other types of benefits, such as Social Security Disability, there may be an offset of one or more benefits involved.

I just wanted to say “Thank You” for all the work you and your staff have done for me. It means the world to not only me, but my family. This has been a long process which has caused so much stress on me and my family. I know it’s not over yet, but you all still deserve the so many thanks.

No matter the outcome, I will recommend you and your office because of all the care and passion.

Francis “Missy” Miller

Thanks for not giving up on my appeals, as I know you said you had never had a case quite like mine before.

I know attorney always get a bad rap, but you care about people. Most people like myself usually don’t have a clue as what do about disability claims.

E.G.

I’d like to take a moment to thank you for taking me on as a client and working your magic for a favorable outcome. My relief for my future is immense.

Please forward my gratitude to your office staff and Andrew as well.

I wish you continued good luck in your practice.
