I fell and injured myself at work and no witness of the accident. I'm afraid that my workers comp claim will be denied for not having a witness to teh incident. What will happen to my case?

I would imagine you reported your accident soon after it happened. If so, there should be no problem. We would be glad to discuss your case with you. Please feel free to contact Willens Law Offices at 312-957-4165. Thanks.
That may or may not be a cause to worry. However, you would do yourself a favor by contacting an attorney who does worker's compensation cases. He or she will be able to properly set up your case to minimize the chances of anyone doubting your claim because of a lack of witnesses
I hope this helps-
