At the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates, our Chicago Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys know how frustrating and confusing the claims process can be. Tragically, many injured workers either never bother to file for workers compensation or settle for far less than they otherwise might be able to get, simply because they don’t understand their rights.
Insurance companies and employers count on your ignorance. After all, it’s in their financial interest to pay out as little as possible for your medical bills, time off work, and other costs. This isn’t to say that claims adjusters act maliciously, obviously – but rather to drive home the point that insurance companies are self interested.
