Schaumburg, Illinois Workers' Compensation Attorneys

Schaumburg IL Workers Compensation Attorney

Working with Injured Workers in Schaumburg, Wheaton, Palatine, and the Surrounding Areas

Statistics published by the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that there were approximately 3 million nonfatal workplace injuries reported by private sector employers during 2014. Workplace accidents do not discriminate and can affect individuals in every way imaginable, and office workers can be just as seriously injured as someone who works at a construction site on a daily basis.

Luckily, if you have been hurt in an on-the-job accident or have developed an illness related to your work environment, you may be entitled to compensation through the Illinois Workers' Compensation Program. Illinois law requires almost all employers to maintain workers' compensation insurance that will pay employees who get hurt benefits regardless of fault. Unfortunately, many injured workers have difficulty obtaining their much-needed benefits, leaving them to deal with medical expenses that are piling up and an inability to earn money while they recover from their injuries. Fortunately, an attorney can often help.

Helping Injured Employees Every Step of the Way

At Therman & Roach, Attorneys at Law, we are committed to helping people who are hurt in workplace accidents obtain the benefits to which they are entitled as quickly as efficiently as possible. We will work with you at every step in the process, from determining whether you have a claim to file to representing you in court in the event that the insurance company refuses to pay. Some of the specific ways that we can help you include the following:

  • Discuss your case with you and let you know whether your injury or illness qualifies as work-related
  • Fill out the paperwork associated with starting the claims process
  • Handle an internal appeal should the insurance company deny your initial claim
  • If your employer's insurance company has denied your claim, represent you in a hearing before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission
  • File a lawsuit on your behalf in the appropriate court
