Chicago Lump-Sum Benefits
Helping Clients Obtain the Results They Need
The burden of proof in a workers’ compensation case is on the employee. An injured worker must demonstrate they have been injured on the job, need medical care, and in cases resulting in short-term or long-term disability, cannot return to work for some length of time.
Once a workers’ compensation case has been approved through a well-documented claim, or the appeals process if necessary, the injured worker is entitled to benefits to cover medical care and replace wages for a period of time. In the case of permanent total disability or permanent partial disability, a worker will be entitled to ongoing payments.
However, sometimes a workers’ compensation carrier will later claim these payments are no longer appropriate and may cut off the injured worker’s benefits. In the event that claims are denied initially or after payments have begun, a worker may appeal through the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.
Anesi Ozmon, a long-established workers’ compensation law firm in Chicago, has a proven track record of favorable outcomes on behalf of clients facing disputes with the commission. We are well qualified to advise clients on the strengths of a lump-sum settlement offer. In addition, we fight to ensure our clients are compensated at the highest level; for example, obtaining permanent total disabilities rather than permanent partial disabilities, or permanent disability rather than temporary disability.
