Champaign Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Increase Your Chances Of Receiving Benefits With The Help Of A Lawyer
In Illinois, workers’ compensation is your exclusive remedy for work injuries, which means you cannot sue your employer for negligence if you are injured on the job. If a negligent third party is at fault, however, we may be able to sue it for negligence.

We work hard to help workers get the benefits they need. Please call 1-800-642-1227 or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation with a Champaign workers’ compensation attorney.
Our Workers’ Comp Practice
If your workers’ comp claim has been denied, we can help you appeal and get benefits. Many claims are initially denied. This does not mean you should give up. We can also work to get your medical bills paid.
We represent numerous types of workers, including construction workers, industrial, manufacturing and warehouse workers, office workers, and people who work in the service industry. Professionals who drive for work can be injured in commercial vehicle accidents. We also represent workers exposed to asbestos who have developed mesothelioma.
One of the important things to remember about workers’ comp is that you have the right to select your own doctor. You do not need to rely on the company doctor’s diagnosis.
Your workers’ comp benefits vary depending on the severity of your injury and may include:
- Medical care necessary for the injury
- Temporary total disability
- Temporary partial disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Permanent total disability
- Death benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation and maintenance benefits in some cases
When a third party is liable for your accident such as a subcontractor or manufacturer, we can file a separate injury suit against that party.
