One of the most important reasons people need experienced workers' compensation attorneys is something that you cannot find on the internet: Our knowledge about DOCTORS in the entire state, from all the injury cases we have seen. We have seen countless independent medical exam (IME) reports and taken many depositions, and we know exactly what to expect from most of the doctors. Here is a quick explanation of a key value in hiring a workers' compensation attorney: http://www.cortilaw.com/doctors-in-workers-comp-injury-cases-how-an-experienced-attorney-can-help/

If you are injured while doing a "voluntary" or "recreational" work activity, such as a basketball game, you could actually win a workers' compensation case! In a recent Illinois claim, a school teacher was injured playing basketball with students. Let's review the circumstances of his case, and how he was able to win: http://www.cortilaw.com/injured-during-recreational-or-voluntary-work-activity-a-basketball-game-workers-comp-case/

A factory worker at Ford bent over and injured his back while doing his job. He had to file a workers' compensation claim, and a lawyer fought for his case for years at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. He had to go to two "independent" medical exams at the request of the workers' compensation insurance company's attorneys. Here is what happened to him: http://www.cortilaw.com/factory-worker-bends-over-injures-back-a-ford-motor-company-workers-comp-case/

A school bus driver slipped and his right eye hit the handle used to open the bus door. He experienced eye pain and headaches, which then progressed to loss of vision in the eye. His case is an example of an odd-lot permanent total disability workers' comp claim.

Doctors can sometimes have issues figuring out if an injured worker has a neck injury or a shoulder/arm injury. Injuries to these body parts can result in very similar symptoms. A recent Walmart slip and fall workers' comp case had this issue: http://www.cortilaw.com/workers-comp-slip-fall-neckspine-injury-hidden-by-shoulderarm-injury/
