The Lawyers You Need & Deserve
Chicago Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Have you suffered an injury while on the job? Workplace injuries can leave you with large amounts of medical bills, significant wage loss and temporary or permanent disability. If your employer tries to limit, delay or deny your workers’ compensation benefits, it is important to consult with an experienced work injury attorney as soon as possible.
At Trapp & Geller, we handle Workers’ Compensation claims for clients in Chicago, throughout Cook County and across Illinois. We represent all injured workers, including construction workers, factory workers, iron and steel mill workers, restaurant workers, bus drivers, taxi drivers, nurses and nursing assistants, and anyone who was injured on the job and needs an experienced attorney to protect his or her rights.
Illinois Workers’ Compensation Benefits
In Illinois, Workers’ Compensation benefits generally fit into the following categories:
- Medical benefits: If your injury was work-related, your employer is responsible for paying your medical expenses, including hospital care, medication, physical therapy and other forms of treatment.
- Temporary total disability (TTD): If your injury keeps you out of work for three or more days, your employer must provide you with two-thirds of your average weekly income for the previous year.
- Permanent total disability (PTD): If your injury prevents you from ever returning to work, you may be eligible to receive benefits for life.
- Death benefits: If a workplace injury results in death, the spouse and/or children of the deceased are entitled to receive death benefits in the amount of two-thirds of the deceased worker’s average weekly wage.
Many injured workers settle for far less than their claim is worth. Don’t let this happen to you.
Workers’ Compensation and Third-Party Claims
If a negligent third party caused your accident, you may be able to pursue an injury claim in addition to a Workers’ Compensation claim. Third parties include contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and other parties who are not your employer or a fellow employee. Our lawyers can help you explore all avenues of compensation.
