No matter what your job is, there is always a risk of injury at work in Illinois. These injuries include occupational sickness, broken bones, and worsening of pre-existing illnesses. If you have suffered an on-the-job injury in Illinois, it is important to hire a highly experienced lawyer with a trustworthy background.

Since 1962, the law firm of Krol, Bongiorno & Given, Ltd. has been a leader in the field of workers’ compensation law in Illinois. We have handled well over 30,000 claims for injured workers and have consistently generated some of the largest settlements. We focus entirely on workers’ compensation, which allows us to pour all of our time, resources, and efforts into helping people get back on their feet.

Serious injuries change lives and seldom for the better. Also, dealing with accidents at work is often confusing. It can feel even intimidating to go against an insurance company representing your employer. Many injured workers make the mistake of assuming that the funds they will receive through workers’ compensation will be fair and cover all of their medical needs and lost wages.

We have put together a list of common mistakes we see injured workers make. These mistakes include:

– Letting the insurance company take control of your claim
– Failure to report the accident immediately
– Failing to follow through with treatment
– Falsifying your injuries and symptoms
– Not filing an accurate injury report
– Failing to inform your doctor
– Trying to file on your own
