Medical Care Benefits

What Medical Care Benefits you are entitled to, and how best to get that Medical Treatment?

The insurance company is not there to help you and will often give you wrong information. Call Tuggle & Lichtenberger to find out about your rights to medical care.


If you have a valid claim, you are entitled to 100% coverage of all related medical bills. This includes ambulance, emergency room, doctors, hospitals, surgery, physical therapy and medications. You are entitled to this care until your doctor releases you from care.


In some cases, you may be entitled to medical treatment even after your doctor releases you from care.

If you cannot work you are entitled to weekly benefits

You are also entitled to collect weekly benefits to offset lost wages. The benefit is determined by formula which can sometimes be complicated. This weekly benefit is also tax free.


Call Tuggle & Lichtenberger to help figure out the maximum amount of money you are entitled to collect while you are off work after an accident.

Frequently Asked Questions

You may also be a candidate to collect monies for other benefits such as Social Security Disability and SSI. We will help you figure out all the benefits to which you may be entitled.

Our attorneys will meet with you quickly to make sure you understand your rights. Do not let the insurance company delay your benefits.


We can set your case for an emergency hearing to make sure the insurance company is not dragging their feet.


Even if you are already getting benefits call Tuggle & Lichtenberger to help make sure those benefits do not get terminated in the middle of your treatment.


We will make sure the medical bills are getting paid, your weekly checks are for right dollar amount, your prescriptions are covered, and the insurance company is playing by the rules.

We have offices in Danville and Champaign-Urbana. Tuggle and Lichtenberger will gather all necessary evidence and use that evidence to get your benefits. If you are unable to work you will need benefits as soon as possible.


When it is time to settle we will negotiate for you and often get more money than the insurance company is willing to offer you. Call or contact Tuggle & Lichtenberger now.
