We Represent Employees for Workers Compensation
If you are injured at work or as a result of employment activities, you are entitled to receive benefits. The people of the State of Illinois decided many years ago that injured workers were deserving of compensation and payment of benefits when they are injured on the job.
At Burnett & Caron, you will find experienced workers compensation attorneys who are ready to help with your workers compensation case.
When you work with our law firm you will be provided with information in writing, you will receive a copy of your medical records as they are received, home or hospital visits will be arranged as needed, and every effort will be made to return your communication the same day. Did we mention, our clients have our home telephone numbers.
Workers compensation cases require prompt attention as the law requires that an injured employee provide “notice” to the employer within forty-five (45) days of the accident. However, you must provide notice as soon as possible and you should not wait the entire 45 days. Informing the employer of a work accident as soon as possible is the most prudent course of action.
Our experienced workers compensation lawyers will answer your questions, including: what is workers compensation, what are the injury and medical benefits, what about disability payments and compensation, how does the workers compensation system work, what to look for in a lawyer, and more.
