    Experienced legal representation in workers' compensation law

    Under Illinois law, the overwhelming majority of employers are required to provide no-fault workers’ compensation insurance to their employees. Through a workers’ comp claim, people who were hurt on the job are entitled to medical treatment for their injuries, lost time benefits and potentially a settlement — regardless of whether or not their employer was at fault for the accident.

    The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) is the State agency that 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. Unfortunately, despite the no-fault nature of the workers’ comp system, some injured workers still have a hard time getting the full and fair benefits that they are owed.

    At Tuite Law, our Rockford workers’ compensation attorneys are dedicated to the representation of workers who are injured on the job.  We do not represent insurance companies.  Our goal is to get you justice and the full financial benefits that you rightfully deserve.  If you or your loved one was hurt on the job in Illinois or your employer is in Illinois, please contact our Rockford law office for a free, no obligation review of your case.

    What benefits are available through a workers’ comp claim in Illinois?

    If you were hurt on the job, workers’ compensation benefits are available to cover your costs. More, specifically, the benefits can include but are not limited to:

    • All 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; and
    • 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.  If you are having any trouble getting access to the full workers’ comp benefits that you believe you deserve, please call us for a free consultation.  We will review your case, answer your questions, and help you take action to protect your rights.  The insurance company does not get to make the final decision on your case.

    Was your workers’ compensation claim denied? Take immediate action

    For a number of different reasons, workers’ compensation claims are sometimes unfairly denied or underpaid by insurers.  If your workers’ comp claim was denied, you need to take immediate action to preserve your rights and protect your interests.  While you generally have three years from the date of the accident to file an appeal, the longer you wait to take action, the more challenging it will be to build a successful claim.  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.

    Frequently asked questions about workers' compensation cases in Illinois

    I've been hurt on the job—what do I do?

    First, report your accident to your supervisor.  Seek medical attention, if necessary, as soon as possible.  Tell the medical provider how you were injured on the job.  Medical providers who treat you for a work injury should bill the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier, not your primary insurance.

    Feel free to call our office for a consultation.  There are several advantages to hiring our office early in the process of your case.  One, we can advise you earlier and guide you through the legal process.  Two, we can make sure the insurance company does not take advantage of you by having you sign unnecessary documents.  Three, we can prevent problems before they arise.  Four, we make sure you obtain all benefits you are entitled to from the outset. Since our fees are only paid at the conclusion of your case and depend on the amount of your recovery, there is no extra charge to the client as we guide you through the legal process.
