Orthopedic Injury and Broken Bones
A broken bone or orthopedic injury suffered in an on-the-job accident can leave you out of work for weeks, months, or even longer. Getting access to the financial resources you need during your time away from work, whether to pay for medical expenses or to supplement lost wages, is important.
At Seidman Margulis & Fairman, LLP, attorney Steven J. Seidman has helped injured men and women in Chicago and across Illinois get full access to the workers' compensation benefits they are owed for almost three decades. We put the full weight of our experience and legal knowledge behind one goal: getting you maximum compensation. We focus on your financial compensation so that you can focus on making the fullest possible physical recovery.Use The Protections The Law Affords You
Illinois law provides solid protection for injured workers, but you have to take the first step. You can't rely on your employer or its insurance company to provide you clear guidance that is exclusively in your best interest. Our law firm is committed to giving injured people the support and information they need to go after a full and fair financial recovery.
If you need workers' compensation benefits to help you for a few months or longer, we can help. We understand the system and know how to file for the right kind of benefits for your situation. You may be able to recover:
- Payment for medical expenses
- Weekly income at up to two-thirds' your regular pay
- Lump-sum payments and settlements
- Disability payments if your injury prevents you from returning to work
- Payment of future medical expenses
Whether you have suffered a broken arm from a scaffolding fall, a fractured hip from a slip-and-fall accident at work, or some other kind of orthopedic injury, we will work to get the money you need so you can focus on your physical recovery.Working To Recover Your Workers' Compensation Benefits
Do not wait to protect your rights. If you do not act quickly following your orthopedic injury, you could lose your right to recover crucial benefits. If you know that you have been injured on the job and that you may be facing a lengthy recovery, call our office at (312) 781-1977 or contact us online.
