You work hard to support yourself and your family. Our respected worker's compensation attorneys have helped countless employees in Illinois and Iowa who have been hurt or sickened in the workplace.
Injured workers are supposed to quickly receive disability assistance, medical care, and wage replacement benefits, regardless of the employer's fault for the injury. The law is designed to avoid drawn-out lawsuits by workers against their employers to get them the money they need immediately. Unfortunately, the employer or insurance carrier quite often contests the payment of benefits or refuses to provide needed medical care.
When this happens, our experienced worker's compensation attorneys aggressively pursue the proper payment of benefits on your behalf. We represent injured workers from the initial claim all the way through the negotiation, settlement, or appeal of a workers compensation award.
We've handled numerous types of workplace injury claims, including:
- Construction accidents
- Factory or manufacturing accidents
- Warehouse accidents
- Accidents involving equipment
- Reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Exposure to infectious disease
- Chemical exposure
In some cases, worker's compensation is not the only available solution for an injured worker. In many instances, someone other than the employer shares the responsibility for an injury, including building owners, subcontractors, product manufacturers or designers, or another driver. If another person or company is responsible for your injury, we utilize our knowledge of personal injury and negligence litigation to pursue those additional parties above and beyond your worker's compensation benefits.
