What To Do If You Can't Return To Work
We fight to protect your rights after a workplace injury
Workers' compensation is set up to pay your medical expenses and some of your lost wages until you are able to return to work. But what if your injuries leave you unable to return to the same job? The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at Schweickert & Ganassin, LLP can help you with your claim to ensure you get all of the benefits you deserve.
Under the workers' compensation laws of Illinois, if an on-the-job injury leaves you unable to return to your old job, your employer may offer you another one. If that job pays less than your old one, you can receive benefits totaling 2/3 the difference in pay.
