Arbitration And Appeals
When you file for workers’ compensation benefits, you have the right to a trial before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. While the trials are held before an arbitrator and without a jury, you must be thoroughly prepared to state your case, prove that your injuries are work-related, and explain the extent of your injuries. Medical records and bills must be obtained for evidence and often medical depositions are required to win a case. At Kanoski Bresney, an experienced attorney will represent you at your hearing and make a powerful argument on your behalf for lost wages, medical benefits, and permanent disability benefits.
If the arbitrator at your hearing issues a ruling that is not favorable, you have a limited time to file an appeal. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients in appeals to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and all the way up to the Illinois Supreme Court. We know how to protect your rights.
