Workers' Compensation

When you suffer a workplace injury, you deserve compensation for any and all medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. It does not matter who was at fault, as long as the injury occurred in the course of work. Most employers must, by law, carry workers' compensation insurance, and must provide you with the necessary forms if you ask.

But the workers' compensation process can be confusing, and the insurance companies are famous for finding ways to deny valid claims. For the most part, they will not pay you anything unless forced to. With the attorneys of Bellas & Wachowski on your side, you can make sure that they pay the compensation you are entitled to. We offer an initial consultations and do all work on contingency, charging nothing until you receive the money you need.

Workers' Compensation in Illinois

Compared to most states, Illinois has very good workers' compensation laws for employees. Everything from repetitive trauma injuries (tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome) to debilitating spinal cord and back injuries are covered. Most employees receive the money they need, if they follow all the necessary procedures. Our lawyers can guide you through the process.

In many workers' compensation cases, there is a possibility of getting compensation from some other source as well. If someone besides your employer is at fault, such a sub-contractor or general contractor, you can start a separate third-party claim for additional damages. We talk about this more on our construction accident page.
