Workers' Compensation

At The Davis Law Group, P.C., our workers’ compensation attorneys are dedicated to ensuring the best outcome possible for those injured on the job. We understand that a workplace accident can have serious consequences on your personal and professional life. If you have been injured on the job in the Chicago area, you should contact a worker's compensation lawyer as soon as possible. Our lawyers represent clients on worker's compensation claims throughout Cook County, Lake County and DuPage County. We can help you with the complex process of filing a claim and get you the maximum benefits that you deserve.

The Workers’ Compensation Act (“the Act”) covers almost all employees in the State of Illinois. The Act requires employers and their insurance companies to compensate employees for injuries that arise out of and in the course of employment. Proving fault on the part of your employer is not necessary. Filing a claim should not have any impact on your relationship with your employer. In fact, the law prohibits retaliation against an employee for the filing of a claim. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission is the impartial administrative agency that will resolve your Workers’ Compensation Claim if efforts to settle are fruitless.

If you are injured on the job, you should seek medical attention immediately or as soon as your physical abilities are affected. When seeking medical attention, make certain that you tell the medical provider that the injury is work-related so that it is properly documented.

At The Davis Law Group, P.C., our Chicago area workers' compensation attorneys will first attempt to reach a favorable settlement for your claim to ensure just compensation for your injury. If such a settlement cannot be reached, we will not hesitate to litigate on your behalf. Oftentimes, our willingness to litigate will convince the opposition to enter into a favorable resolution.

The process begins with a free consultation, in which will discuss the facts and circumstances surrounding your specific case. Once we have the full picture of what transpired, we will be able to determine the best approach to enable you to receive the maximum benefits. We will gather and review any and all pertinent documentation and evidence in order to build the strongest case possible.

The next step is filing a claim with the Workers' Compensation Commission on a form known as an Application for Adjustment of Claim. While we are required to send a copy of the form to your employer, this is usually the only contact we will have with them. Your employer likely has workers' compensation insurance; therefore, all matters will be handled through their insurance company. You will not need to worry about awkwardness at the office or losing your job because you filed a claim.

We understand that a workplace injury can have a significant affect on your family and livelihood. Please do not hesitate to contact our Cook County Worker's Compensation Attorneys at The Davis Law Group, P.C., if you were injured on the job. Our Chicago area attorneys are committed to high-quality, professional legal representation. Let us put our vast experience to work for you.

I want to extend my sincere gratitude for the success in getting my charges reduced. It has been a rather traumatic experience for me. Though I try to keep an optimistic outlook, it didn't seem possible. But you guys pulled it off and I couldn't be more grateful. This has been a great weight lifted off my shoulders. D.F.
I would like to take this time to thank you for a job well done. I received my full reinstatement documents today for full driving privileges. This took me by surprise. I did not expect to see the results this fast. I just want to say that I am blessed to have a very good lawyer like yourself to guide me through the process... I am very grateful. You're the best. Thanks again. G.B.
My special thanks for your help, guidance, and support during a most difficult time. You came recommended as "the best" and you lived up to your reputation! I wish you a lovely holiday season and a new year of challenges overcome, new joys experienced, and much fulfillment realized. All good thoughts your way. S.S.
I am very grateful for your work and representation. Although it is difficult for me to truly express my gratitude through e-mail, I hope you can still understand how thankful I am that we were able to dismiss my case on the first court date. I am very pleased with the outcome. Again, thank you very much for your time. Please enjoy the rest of your week. D.K.
