What Benefits Can I Claim From Workers’ Compensation?

After being injured on the job, you may be concerned about your financial state. Not only do you face medical bills and rehabilitation costs, but you may also be unable to work due to your injury. Fortunately, most employers are required to provide workers’ compensation benefits for their employees. If you are injured, you will be able to apply for the necessary benefits. At Gordon & Centracchio LLC, we have helped clients throughout Illinois make informed decisions and to pursue the full compensation they deserve.

Your exact benefits may differ depending on your injury and incurred costs. However, you may be able to receive compensation for:

  • Medical costs
  • Vocational rehabilitation costs
  • Permanent impairment
  • Weekly compensation 

The weekly compensation can either be for total or partial disability, and either temporary or permanent disability. Our goal is to make sure you start collecting benefits as soon as possible. How long you will receive benefits depends on the nature and seriousness of your injury.

Do You Also Have A Third-Party Claim?

You may be eligible to file a third-party personal injury claim while also pursuing workers’ compensation. This can help you recover all your lost wages and future lost income. You can only pursue a third-party claim if another party’s negligence contributed to your injury. This could be anything from a negligent co-worker to a manufacturer that created a faulty machine. Our firm has helped many clients uncover and pursue third-party claims in addition to their workers’ compensation claims. We will carefully comb through the details of your case to explore all avenues for potential compensation.
