Workers’ Compensation Claims (MO & IL)
Workers’ Compensation is generally a “no-fault” type of insurance coverage designed to provide medical care and other financial benefits for individuals injured while working. Essentially, in exchange for guaranteed Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage and benefits injured workers give up the right to sue their employer in court for any negligence associated with their injuries. Workers’ Compensation benefits typically include:
- Payment for All Necessary Medical Treatment
- Lost Wage Benefits
- Payment for Any Permanent Disability (Partial or Total)
- Compensation for any Disfigurement or Permanent Scarring
- Vocational Training (or retraining) and Return to Work Programs
- Death and Funeral Benefits
