Hurt on the Job? We Can Help.
You never wanted to be in this situation: hurt on the job, with no way to provide for your family.
Even worse, you’re having trouble getting the support you need from your employer and their insurance company. Your injury should qualify you for workers’ compensation benefits.
Now, your rights aren’t being protected. Maybe they aren’t giving you the full benefits you deserve. Or maybe you’re getting completely denied.
Either way, you can’t count on the insurance company to stand up for you. No matter what they say, remember this: Your interests are not their priority. They care about the company and its bottom line.
At Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer, we don’t like when the rights of hardworking Illinois residents are trampled. We’re proud to provide Real Help for Real People and stand up for our neighbors in Decatur and anywhere in Central Illinois.
If you’ve suffered a workplace injury and aren’t being treated fairly, give us a call today to see how you could improve your outlook.
What You Should Do after a Work Injury
After a work accident, it can be hard to process what comes next.
Our lawyers can help you understand the process for getting workers’ comp benefits, which can be complex.
Start with what you need to do after getting hurt at work:
- Seek medical attention for any injuries or illnesses.
- Immediately report your injury to your supervisor.
- Contact an experienced workers’ comp lawyer.
Your employer might ask you to not report your injury, saying they’ll take care of your without having to put anything on file. They might even offer you a lump sum to cover your costs.
Don’t let them pressure you.
Taking the money, or not filing a claim, can only hurt you later on. You have to stand up for your rights.
The experienced lawyers at Tuggle, Schiro, Lichtenberger & Themer can help you do just that. You’ve given enough to your company. Now, it should be their turn to give back to you.
If you’re in Decatur, or anywhere in Central Illinois, and need help, give us a call today.
We’ll even evaluate your case at no charge to you.
