Getting Medical Care After A Work Injury
We help workers who have been hurt on the job
It sounds pretty obvious-if you've been hurt at work, you need to see a doctor. But in order to remain eligible for workers' compensation benefits in Illinois, there are certain rules that need to be followed. If you don't meet these rules, your benefits could be at risk. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at Schweickert & Ganassin, LLP are very familiar with the process and can help you get covered, quality medical care.
Under Illinois workers' compensation law, a worker injured on the job is eligible to receive 100% coverage of all related medical expenses. This includes all necessary doctor appointments, surgical procedures, medication and physical therapy. You can be treated by many different types of doctors to help you recover. But there is a catch.
