When you've been injured in a work accident, you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits. It doesn't matter how the accident happened or who caused it. You deserve benefits that include coverage of medical expenses related to your injury and partial wages if you are going to be unable to return to work right away.
The claims process can be frustrating and confusing. Employers challenge claims. Insurance companies question the injuries suffered and the need for treatment. Injured workers can be pressured into returning to the job even though they have not fully recovered. The workers' compensation process can seem imposing and intimidating.
That's why you need an experienced work accident lawyer fighting for you. Our firm has been helping injured workers in Ottawa and throughout Illinois for decades. We have a thorough knowledge of the workers' compensation system and how it works. We know how to fight back against challenges to your claim.
Dedicated to getting results
Our firm can help you navigate the claims process every step of the way. From filing the proper paperwork, providing all needed information and meeting deadlines, we help ensure that your claim won't be dismissed or delayed because of a procedural error.
If your claim is denied or challenged, we will be ready to fight for your rights in front of the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. Our legal team gathers evidence to support your claim. Our lawyers fight on your behalf in front of an arbitrator or a panel of commissioners. We are prepared to fight in court, if necessary.
We are dedicated to helping you get the full amount of benefits that you deserve-the benefits you need to help you recover from your injury as much as possible. Many times, disputed workers' compensation claims are settled out of court but we are only interested in a settlement that works for you.
Employers and insurance companies don't have your best interests in mind. They want to minimize the amount of benefits you receive, and they have lawyers who look for ways to pay you as little as possible. You need an experienced work accident lawyer who is fighting for what's best for you.
Being injured in a work accident can lead to a difficult time for workers and their families. Medical expenses add up quickly and there is less income coming in while the worker can't return to the job. As an injured worker, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Get a lawyer who won't stop fighting until you get them.
