Illinois Workers’ Compensation Defense

Our firms’ primary practice is the defence of Employers in Workers’ Compensation Cases. Our Workers’ Compensation practise encompasses the entire state of Illinois. Our attorneys regularly appear at all arbitration venues on behalf of employers and insurance carriers, and we provide expert and cost-efficient handling of cases in each venue. We provide quality representation from the arbitration and review levels through appeals to the various Circuit, Appellate and Supreme Courts. Because of our long-standing concentration in the Workers’ Compensation practice, we have developed an unmatched expertise in the law and procedure of the Workers’ Compensation Commission and its application to specific industries, self-insureds, and the insurance industry.

Given this background, we are able to customize our representation to the special needs of our clients. In addition to handling filed claims, our attorneys recognize the value of providing assistance to claims handlers at the earliest stages of file assessment and can provide expeditious counsel as to the law and its application to a particular fact pattern. Most times this is done with little or no cost.

Our attorneys are also able to provide more in-depth and ongoing counselling, including claims reviews, evaluation of claims investigation and handling procedures. We can tailor seminars and presentations for the specific needs of a particular industry or client. We have also worked with claims and human resource personnel to develop and implement claims handling and in-plant settlement programs to deal with all aspects of the claim from injury through resolution.
