Experienced legal representation for the injured and disabled.
Tuite Law a Rockford workers’ compensation law firm dedicated to the representation of workers who are injured on the job. We do not represent insurance companies. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) is the State agency which operates the court system for workers’ compensation cases. Cases are heard by an Arbitrator assigned by the Commission. Appeals of the Arbitrator’s decision are heard by a panel of three Commissioners. Our office will work to make sure that any injured worker receives each and every benefit he or she is entitled to under the law.
These include, but are not limited to:
- reasonable and necessary medical care;
- payment of temporary disability benefits while off work for a work-related condition;
- vocational rehabilitation for those unable to return to former employment because of the injury;
- payment for any permanent or partial disability caused by the injury.
While the Workers’ Compensation Act and the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission strive to ensure a fair and expeditious resolution of disputes, the law, and the Commission’s procedures can be complex. The experienced lawyers at Tuite Law will guide each client during and through the legal process of a work-related injury or illness.
Work-related injuries can include the following: back injuries, neck injuries, ruptured discs, carpal tunnel, rotator cuff tears, tennis elbow, ulnar nerve compression, foot and knee injuries, sprains & strains, fractures, and amputations, burns and other scarring, dermatitis, breathing disorders such as asbestosis and silicosis.
Workers’ Compensation claims are handled on a “contingency fee” basis. No “up-front” payment is needed. We don’t charge a fee unless we are successful in obtaining benefits for you.
The first consultation with our office is free.
