WORKERS' COMPENSATION FAQ'S

If you’ve sustained a work injury in Illinois , there are three potential outcomes. The first outcome would be that of a scheduled lose. Say for instance if you break your arm and after medical treatment you’re able to go back to work, you’re entitled to a percentage of disability for your arm based upon a scheduled loss.

An alternative is, if as a result of the work injury you’re unable to return to any form of employment, you would be entitled to to permanent total disability, which would be two thirds of your wages paid to you for the remainder of your life.

YOUR SATISFACTION IS OUR TOP PRIORITY

Any lawyer can promise you a great experience, but delivering is a different matter. At our firm, we make client satisfaction a top priority at all times. Here are some key things that set us apart:

Fast Communications!

You can opt-in to receive text alerts and status updates right to your cell phone.

Initial Consultations Are Always with an Attorney!

Some law firms in the region use “runners” or other non-attorney, untrained contractors to drive around signing people up for cases. When meeting with someone about your case, ask if that person is actually an attorney. If not, you might want to call an actual lawyer to discuss your case.

Add-on Services!

If you are receiving a sizeable award in a case, unlike many attorneys, our team can help you find a financial advisor and advise you on additional services that could help you make the most of your recovery.

WORKERS’ COMPENSATION UPDATE

If you have contracted COVID-19 as part of your work environment, please contact us and we can discuss if your condition falls under the Workers’ Compensation Act. If we can prove that you contracted your virus as part of your work environment, you would be entitled to compensation that would include payment of all medical expenses; lost time benefits while you recovery; and a settlement for any ongoing problems after you recover. 

 

Please note that in Illinois, first responders and essential employees are presumed to have contracted COVID-19 at work.  Missouri recognizes that same presumption but limits it to first responders.  Regardless, if believe that you contracted COVID-19 at work, please contact us immediately so that we can inform you of your rights under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
