What Insurance Companies Don’t Want You to Know

DuPage County Workers Compensation Lawyer

Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

When you suffer a work-related injury or illness, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits are intended to compensate you for the medical expenses you incur as a result of your injury or illness, as well as for temporary total disability or permanent disability. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer pays these benefits to you.

However, insurance companies do not work on your behalf; their interest is in maximizing profits for their company, not in paying out claims. They have teams of talented lawyers and adjusters working for them to minimize the amount they pay in claims. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can protect your rights and ensure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.

The attorneys at the Illinois Law Office of Francis J. Discipio are experienced in prosecuting workers’ compensation claims for employees across a variety of industries. We work for you to make sure you receive the maximum possible recovery and secure your future health needs.

How Insurance Companies Take Advantage of Injured Employees

When you file a workers’ compensation claim, the insurance company wants you to believe that there are standard procedures for how to compensate work-related injuries, making it seem as if there is no need to hire an attorney. However, there are a number of ways that insurance companies will try to justify denying your claim or paying you less than you are entitled to under the law. For example, they may claim your injury occurred outside of work, or they may undervalue the worth of your injury by failing to pay you the proper amount for disability benefits. While every claim is different, the only way to ensure that your workers’ compensation rights are protected is by hiring an attorney to serve as your advocate.

We are committed to protecting your interests and getting you the benefits you deserve. We serve the greater Chicagoland area and Cook and DuPage counties.
