Workers Compensation Attorneys in Springfield, Illinois

No fees unless we win.

Suffering a work-related injury can be disastrous for working-class families. The combination of missed work and extensive medical bills can make paying the mortgage exceedingly difficult, causing unnecessary stress to you and your loved ones. Illinois law requires most employers to carry workers compensation insurance. That insurance company must provide medical coverage and other disability benefits if a person’s injury arose out of the course of, and in the scope of, employment.

The experienced Workers’ Compensation Lawyers at the Noll Law Office in Springfield, Illinois can be reached at (217) 414-8889 for a free initial consultation.

Our Worker’s Compensation Attorneys handle worker’s compensation claims including:

  • Police, Firefighters and EMTs
  • State of Illinois Employees;
  • Union Employees
  • All Worker’s Compensation Cases

Available insurance benefits include:

  •   Coverage of the medical bills reasonably necessary to place you at the maximum medical improvement that is possible following the injury;
  •   Disability wages when you cannot work for a period of time following a work-injury (for example, when you are recovering from surgery);
  •   Disability wages when you are working on “light duty” for less compensation after a work-injury;
  •   Vocational rehabilitation;
  •   Permanent partial disability benefits, if you sustained a permanent disability or disfigurement from a work injury, but can continue to work;
  •   Permanent total disability benefits if you are injured and become permanently unable to work (for example, if you suffer a severe spinal injury); and,
  •   Death benefits for surviving family members

If you or a loved one has been injured while working, you should file a claim for benefits with your employer’s workers compensation provider. Most legitimate injuries are covered by the insurance provider, and you can return to work quickly. However, some workers compensation insurance providers may delay coverage of your claim and not provide you with all legally required benefits. This puts pressure on you to “settle” your claim for less than you are entitled to. In such a case, you will likely need to “arbitrate” your case in front of the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission (“IWCC”). There are several steps that you can take to ensure proper coverage of your workers compensation claim. The Noll Law Office can assist you with these important steps.

Frequently Asked Questions

Get The Answers You Need

Immediately Notify Your Employer

In Illinois, most work-related injuries must be reported to an employer within 45 days. While some exceptions do exist, you do not want to be in the position of litigating “notice” with an insurance company. Notice of a work injury can be provided orally or in writing, but written notice is preferred. Your employer must fill out paperwork reporting the injury, as a matter of law.

These reports of injury are important evidence relating to your claim. If you have not already done so, you should prepare a written report of injury and provide it to your employer.

Seek Immediate Medical Attention

You should seek immediate medical attention if you suffer a work-related injury in order to rule out any severe injury. Many times employees wait to seek medical attention, hoping to “walk off” an injury. Insurance companies jump at these situations and argue that if a person didn’t immediately seek medical attention, they clearly could not have been hurt. Nothing is further from the truth. Sprains, strains, and other soft tissue injuries may, in reality, be a meniscal or ACL tear, a herniated disc in the spine, or other severe injury. However, there is no way to specifically diagnose your injury if you do not visit a medical professional. If nothing else, a physician or appropriate medical facility can rule out a dangerous injury and provide you with the peace of mind you need to return to work, knowing that it is safe to continue with your job duties.

The Noll Law Office can assist you with subpoenaing your medical records in preparation for arbitration, and taking the necessary depositions of your physicians. These steps are extremely important if you have sustained a significant injury.

Preserve All Evidence

It is important to preserve any video surveillance, photographs, Facebook postings, text messages, phone calls, voice mails, or other evidence that relates to your injury. If any witnesses to the injury exist, make sure to write down the witnesses’ names, addresses, and telephone numbers.

Noll Law Office attorneys can send a preservation of evidence letter on your behalf, and subpoena evidence on your behalf. The evidence obtained from subpoena can be submitted at your workers compensation arbitration.

Log All Medical Appointments and Medical Bills

You should keep a record of the dates that you treated with all of your doctors, hospitals, and other medical providers. It can be difficult, six months after an injury, to remember all of the details regarding your medical treatment. Noll Law Office attorneys will subpoena your complete medical records on your behalf, but will need to know where to order the records from. It helps to have a log of everywhere you have received medical treatment, to refresh your memory later on.

Medical providers may not sue an employee in collections when there is a pending workers compensation claim. If you receive a collections notice, our attorneys will send cease and desist letters on your behalf.

Wage Information

Workers compensation companies calculates your benefits by using the wages you received in the year prior to injury. Following a work-related injury, you should obtain all wage records for the previous year, and immediately provide them to your attorney. Our lawyers can review the wages to maximize your benefits by reviewing you overtime, concurrent wages, and other wage history.

Filing an Application

Your claim with the IWCC officially begins when you file an “Application for Adjustment of Claim,” describing the injuries you have sustained, your average weekly wages, and the method that you were hurt. We can assist you with this process.

Scheduling Your Appointment at the Noll Law Office

To expedite the free legal review of your claim, you should bring a copy of the medical records, any investigation reports, photographs, videos, Facebook pages, text messages, correspondence, insurance information, and any other evidence in your possession to your claim. The attorney will review the records, together with any other evidence in your possession, and provide you with a free legal opinion as to the merits of your claim.
