What Is Workers Compensation?
Workers compensation laws exist to compensate employees for medical treatment, disability, and loss of wages that occur as a result of an accident in the workplace or a job- related disease or a disability caused by working conditions.
In some cases, injured workers may be entitled to more than just workers' compensation. A third party personal injury claim may be filed if your accident was caused by a party that was not your employer or coworker. As a Southern Illinois and St. Louis Workers Compensation Attorney, Kevin Boyne and his team have experience winning workers comp benefits as well filing and winning personal injury lawsuits when they are appropriate.
Most workers' compensation cases are settled before reaching a hearing or arbitration, which is essentially just a trial based on the evidence. Kevin Boyne, an Illinois and St. Louis Workers Compensation Attorney, can explain the pros and cons of settlements and hearings. Usually the factors that go into you and your attorney’s determination to settle or proceed on to a hearing are determined based on the reasonableness of any settlement offer received, the strength of the evidence regarding your case, the additional costs of litigation, and the potential outcomes from a hearing. We can help you determine the route to the best outcome for your case.
