Workers' Compensation in Illinois

The recovery process for a workers' compensation claim is a complex one. In fact, it is often more complex than personal injury claims. There are certain restrictions and stipulations on workers' compensation claims, and though both can result in long-term injury or disability, the payout options are not the same. For example, an injured worker cannot pursue damages for pain and suffering from their employer. Injured workers are also at risk for reduced compensation, claim denials, and lengthy delays that may add more stress to their situation. These adverse circumstances are even more likely if a misstep is made in the process, such as failing to provide proper or timely documentation.

Our attorney can help protect you from delays, denials, and reduced claims. Our firm helps you navigate the process in an efficient and effective manner. We manage the legal aspects of your claim, giving you and your family the time and energy you need to focus on healing and moving forward in your life. We ensure that paperwork and proper documentation is accurately and promptly filed with the appropriate persons. We stand by you throughout the entire process, protecting your best interests and your familys future.

Personal Injury or Wrongful Death Claims

Generally, workers relinquish their right to bring a personal injury claim or wrongful death claim against their employer. However, there are many cases that involve third party negligence, which may open up more options for workers and their families. Our attorney will meticulously review the details of your case to determine if third party negligence may have been a factor in your injury. We will aggressively represent you and protect your interests. We strive to hold negligent parties responsible for their actions and will always pursue the most compensation possible for your situation.
