What if you cannot work again after your Work accident?

In Illinois Work Comp Law, you may be able to get a lifetime check if you can prove you are unable to work again as a result of your work injury.

It is not enough to prove you cannot do your old job. You must show you are not able to do any job.

You can do this through your medical records and your doctor’s opinion that you unable to work and your work injury caused your inability to work.

You may also need to undergo a job search to show that your restrictions, education, work history, and age keep you from being able to work. The job search is something that will take time. You have to make multiple weekly applications for jobs over an extended period of time.

You should also request the insurance company provide you with vocational assistance, which means help finding a job, because they will have to pay someone to help you in a job search.

Questions about job searches and inability to work, call Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
