The Illinois workers’ compensation system was designed to enable injured workers in all industries to access financial and medical benefits after workplace accidents or exposures.
Before the system was established, injured workers had to file personal injury lawsuits against their employers and prove negligence to recover compensation for their injuries. Most of the time, these cases were unsuccessful. When the no-fault workers’ compensation system was implemented, workers were promised fair treatment, medical care, and appropriate benefits without the hassle of proving liability in court. Unfortunately, that’s not how the workers’ comp system always works.
In Illinois, workers’ compensation is statutory, which means that to qualify for benefits you must satisfy very specific criteria. Failure to meet even one requirement may result in your claim getting reduced or denied altogether. Injured workers who try to handle their claims on their own watch their financial resources dwindle away, go without necessary medical interventions, and become swamped with stacks of bills they can’t pay. That’s why we’re here.
We shoulder the financial burden and the stress of pursuing work accident benefits so you can concentrate on healing. Our workers’ compensation lawyers are familiar with all aspects of the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act including:
We’ve helped more than 20,000 injured workers in Chicagoland recover compensation and our attorneys have a 97% success rate in work injury cases in Illinois. We know how to obtain fast, favorable results.
If you are unable to work because of a physical or mental impairment, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may be available to help you make ends meet and obtain the medical treatment you need.
These benefits are not automatic, however. Most applicants face numerous challenges, lengthy processing times, and unfair claims denials when attempting to secure compensation through SSA disability programs. In fact, more than 70% of claims are denied at the initial application level and thousands of claimants die every year while attempting to navigate the appeals process. Whether you’re just beginning to apply for Social Security Disability benefits or your claim has been denied, our attorneys can optimize your chance of success.
Our team has decades of collective legal experience and we understand how the SSA evaluates and processes disability claims. We know what it takes to prove your disability, how to present effective arguments in Administrative Law Judge Hearings, and what steps to take to get faster results for people who qualify for expedited processing.
If the negligent or intentional actions of someone else cause you to suffer serious injuries, you may be able to recover financial compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible party.
In some cases, actual expenses and general damages can be significant. And when egregious behavior causes your pain, punitive damages may be awarded as well. Unfortunately, a single mistake could cause you to forfeit your right to recover the money you need to replace lost wages, pay for medical treatment, and compensate you for your pain and suffering.
