Hemorrhoids and/or Varicose Providers
Chicago Attorneys Helping Workers’ Compensation Claimants
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act provides protection to employees who have suffered harm from a work-related incident or the aggravation of a condition. Hemorrhoids and varicose vein conditions unfortunately may result from some work environments. Successful claimants may secure benefits, including reasonably necessary medical expenses, for these conditions if they were developed in the course and scope of their employment. When a job-related incident or repetitive activity leads to painful hemorrhoids or a varicose vein condition, the Chicago workers’ compensation lawyers at Katz, Friedman, Eisenstein, Johnson, Bareck & Bertuca can help. We bring decades of experience to our client advocacy, and we understand how to make a strong case for compensation in a wide variety of circumstances.
Seeking Benefits for Hemorrhoids or Varicose Vein Conditions
Workers’ compensation claimants carry the legal burden of proving that they are entitled to benefits. They may present evidence that their condition, such as a hemorrhoid condition, was caused by work duties or was aggravated by required job tasks. Proof that the condition was caused by or aggravated by work is necessary to a successful claim.
To receive benefits, as set forth in Illinois law, a workers’ compensation claimant must show that their injury or condition occurred or developed while performing work or actions required by the employer. There must be a causal relationship between the employment and the hemorrhoid or varicose vein condition. In some circumstances, a workers’ compensation claimant may suffer an acceleration of the need for treatment for an underlying condition. They would be required to show that this acceleration was directly caused by their job duties. Medical records are essential to a successful workers’ compensation claim. They prove the extent of the injuries and document any required treatment.
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission assesses workers’ compensation claims and determines whether a claimant has established a compensable work-related injury. Employees who are suffering from hemorrhoids or varicose veins must present a strong case that their condition originated in the course and scope of their employment. In some situations, moreover, the Commission may find that compensation is due to claimants who suffer from a hemorrhoid condition that is related to an underlying work injury, even if the hemorrhoids were not directly caused by the job. An employee who was injured at work may require narcotic pain medication and ultimately may have a valid claim based on hemorrhoids if those narcotics led to severe constipation and the development of the hemorrhoids. In this case, the underlying condition (constipation) directly relates to the medications used to treat the condition that was related to the work injury.
