How to File a Claim for an Illinois Workers' Compensation in Arm, Neck, or Shoulder Injuries
There are many instances where an employer will try to deny the need for a workers' compensation claim. They may claim that the injury was a pre-existing condition, that it didn't happen while working, or that the employee never mentioned the injury.
Even if you did have a pre-existing injury in either your neck, shoulder, or arm, it is possible that you can still attain workers' compensation if your workplace aggravated the condition. Once injured, under Illinois state law you have forty-five days to give notice to your employer. Contact us today by calling 630-932-9100630-932-9100.
