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. We can help you with the complex process of filing a claim and get you the maximum benefits 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 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 at our office, in which we 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 firm, The Davis Law Group, P.C., if you were injured on the job. Our attorneys are committed to high-quality, professional legal representation. Let us put our vast experience to work for you.
