Those Injured at Work

Experienced legal representation for the injured and disabled.

Injured at Work in Rockford Illinois?

Tuite Law was built on the foundation of representing workers injured on the job.  We know that injured workers have many concerns – who will pay my medical bills, how will I support myself and my family while I’m missing work, am I being treated fairly by my employer and the insurance company.  Our job is to level the playing field.  We aggressively fight to protect your rights to the fullest extent provided by law.

Tuite Law has represented virtually every type of worker, no matter what occupation. We have represented construction workers, factory workers, retail employees, medical professionals such as nurses or CNA’s, teachers, truck drivers – you name it.  We take on cases that other lawyers often refuse, such as injuries resulting from repetitive trauma or overuse.  We handle cases anywhere in the State of Illinois, no case is too big or too small.  We never have, and never will, represent insurance companies.

When we represent you, Tuite Law is guided by the principles that are the core of our firm:

  1. Each client is entitled to personal attention.  We listen and get to know you and your case;
  2. Each client is treated with respect, compassion, and dignity;
  3. Each client is fully advised of their rights, so they can make informed decisions based on their unique situation;
  4. We aggressively advocate on your behalf, making sure you receive each and every benefit you are entitled to.
  5. In the end, results matter.  TuiteLaw has a proven history of results that has earned it a reputation as one of the leading firms in the State of Illinois on behalf of injured workers.

Having help from an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can often result in getting benefits sooner and with less stress. The process of filing a claim can be complicated and any mistakes you may make can result in delays or even denial of your claim. Our attorneys can guide you through every step of the claims process so that you can get the benefits you need to pay your bills as soon as possible. If your claim is delayed, we can work to make sure you get the medical care you need in the meantime. In the event that your workers’ compensation claim is denied, we will represent you through every step of your appeal.

Another time it is especially important to consult with a lawyer is when you are offered a settlement from the workers’ compensation insurance company. If you are permanently disabled or if you lost a loved one in a workplace accident, disability benefits or death benefits can continue for a long time. In many cases, the insurance company will offer you a lump sum settlement in lieu of receiving continual monthly payments.

While getting a significant amount of money up front may seem immediately preferable, you never want to accept a settlement without first having an experienced workers’ compensation attorney review the settlement offer. In many cases, the offer will be less than you truly deserve in light of all of your future medical needs and lost income. If you accept a settlement offer that is inadequate, you will lose the right to ever collect benefits in relation to this particular injury, disability, or death in the future. For this reason, it is imperative to have a knowledgeable lawyer review the offer to determine whether is it enough to fit your needs.
