We only handle Illinois workers’ compensation cases. Period. While we know many other fantastic attorneys for other areas of law and are happy to refer you to them, we believe that good lawyers are very narrowly focused in what they do. Just as you wouldn’t go to a doctor for your back surgery if that same doctor also treats cancer patients and delivers babies, we don’t think you should hire a lawyer that handles almost every case that walks through the door.
We have created an Illinois wide network of aggressive, experienced and customer service focused workers’ compensation lawyers. The goal of our service is to find the best lawyer within that group for the unique facts of your case. We want to make sure that your lawyer has dealt with similar injuries and knows the Arbitrator that may ultimately decide your case. We are co-counsel on every case that is referred out by our office and only send cases to attorney who we not only believe in, but have a great track record of fighting for their workers’ compensation clients.
We are selective in the cases that we take on, as we devote a lot of time to helping each client and making sure that their case runs smoothly so they can focus on getting better medically. We handle serious injury claims that were caused, aggravated or accelerated by your employment. In other words, if you strained your finger or got three stitches on your leg, we are the wrong resource for you. On the other hand, if you have a significant injury and want a lawyer that will return your phone calls, talk in “plain English,” explain things to you, work with you and fight for your rights, then you have come to the right place.
Our firm and network offers services related to work injuries anywhere in the state of Illinois, including:
- Specific incidents that lead to a physical injury like a bulging or herniated disc in the neck or back, torn rotator cuff, torn ACL or meniscus, broken arm, foot or leg and injuries to the head that cause brain damage.
- Repetitive trauma incidents like typing, heavy lifting, walking on un-even surfaces that lead to plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, bulging or herniated discs or other serious injuries.
- Occupational exposure to asbestos or other dangerous chemicals. Quite often a third party is responsible for these problems. We handle the workers’ compensation end and work with the best personal injury attorneys to go after the responsible party.
- Traditionally tougher cases to win that involve significant injuries such as RSD (complex regional pain syndrome), heart attacks that occur due in part to a job and strokes that are due in part to work conditions.
