Medical Conditions Preventing Work in Rockford Illinois

When a person’s medical condition prevents them from working, there is not just a physical toll, but an economic hardship to the injured person and their family. Tuite Law help clients and their families overcome the financial hardships caused by being unable to work due to a medical condition.

No matter the cause of the medical condition, Tuite Law can help.  If the medical condition was caused by a work injury, we pursue worker’s compensation benefits.  If caused by auto or other accident, we pursue benefits against the responsible insurance company.  If a medical condition arises from no particular cause, the person often has the right to pursue short-term or long-term disability benefits from an employer.  Finally, no matter the cause, Social Security Disability benefits are pursued if a person qualifies.

As injury and disability attorneys, Tuite Law understands the connection between the legal and medical professions.  We work with your physicians to understand your medical condition and document your limitations.  We pursue cases no matter how unusual the medical condition, whether it be a physical impairment or a psychological one.  As always, we do so without any fee to you unless you recover.
