Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney – No Fees Unless We Win

Categories: Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law. | January 30, 2024

American laborers and employees are injured at work every day. Illinois’ no-fault workers’ compensation system entitles those injured employees in Illinois eligible for many forms of compensation including reasonable medical care, lost time from work, and any temporary or permanent disability.

If you are an Illinois worker who has been injured, or if you have gotten sick from doing your job, don’t make the mistake of representing yourself in your workers’ compensation claim. You may think that attempting to recover from a work-related injury on your own is the right thing to do. However, insurance companies do not represent injured workers. As a result, they often attempt to minimize or deny payments for job-related injuries.

Our firm has been a leader in the field of workers’ compensation law, protecting the rights of tens of thousands of workers injured on the job. We have put together a list of common mistakes we see injured workers make. These mistakes include:

– 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
– Letting the insurance company take control of your claim

Since 1962, we have stood up and fought against insurance companies for our clients every single day. We know this is a very difficult time in your life, and we are sensitive to the stresses you are experiencing as a result of your injury. We will review your injuries, the circumstances of the workplace accident and your viable legal options.
