Many people are aware that they may be entitled to compensation from their employer for accidental injuries arising out of and in the course of their employment. However, they are not sure how to go about making a claim for Workers' compensation benefits, what types of accidents and exposures are covered and what benefits are due.
Our Lake County workers compensation lawyers have experience handling all types of on the job injuries and diseases. The initial consultation is free and we are available to meet with you at either of our two offices on evenings or weekends.
No fee will be charged on benefits your employer voluntarily pays and, in most cases, we will charge only 20% of any disputed amounts we are able to recover for you. For more information, please contact us.

Click here for a complete copy of the Illinois Industrial Commission Handbook on Workers' Compensation and Occupational Diseases. Due to budget cuts by the state and neglect by many employers, this document is often not provided to injured workers. Please review the handbook for a summary of the benefits that may be available to you. Remember that many issues are not clear and it is best to consult an Illinois workers compensation lawyer to assist you in determining the compensability of your case, whether to file a claim and to explain any questions you may have.
