Workers’ Compensation Claims
In workers’ compensation claims, employers often direct their employees to seek medical treatment from a company doctor. Employers develop relationships with company clinics and company doctors and often direct their injured workers for doctors who serve, in part, the interest of the employers.
The law in Illinois is that an employee has the absolute right to choose a physician of his choice. An injured employee in the state of Illinois is not required to seek medical treatment with a physician chosen by the employer. It is very important for injured workers to seek medical care from physicians or health care providers they know, they have used, and they trust in rendering medical care to treat and alleviate their work-related injuries.
If your work accident was caused by a negligent third party (such as a co-worker, contractor or product manufacturer), we can help you file a third-party claim for negligence. This can help to maximize your injury settlement if your accident was caused by a negligent party other than your employer.
