Hire an attorney who’s represented the rights of Illinois workers for more than 35 years
When, after all your hard work and commitment to the job, you are injured abruptly in a workplace accident, it can have devastating consequences for you, your family and your future employment prospects. The distressing aftermath of a workplace injury can leave you feeling vulnerable and alone.
My practice can help you obtain the compensation for your injuries or illness that you rightfully deserve, including:
- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependents’ recovery for worker’s death
- Lost wages or salary
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Retraining costs
Qualifying for workers’ compensation
You are entitled to workers’ compensation for an injury or illness that occurred at your workplace or while you were engaged in a work-related activity — regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. Even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence, you can still receive the help you need through workers’ compensation benefits.
Waiving workers’ compensation
When you accept a workers’ compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer. If your employer has acted negligently, you might deserve award of pain & suffering and other damages that are not granted through a workers’ compensation claim. I carefully review your case to determine how you can best recover the compensation you deserve.
Appealing a workers’ compensation decision
If your workers’ compensation claim is unfairly denied, you have only a short window of opportunity to appeal the unjust decision. I can help you maneuver through the overwhelming bureaucratic process of appealing to the Illinois workers’ compensation board.
