About Workers' Compensation
There are many different types of resolutions of workers’ compensation claims. These include permanent total disability awards (PTD), wage differential awards, permanent partial disability awards (PPD), disfigurement awards, medical expense awards and temporary total disability awards (TTD).
We have obtained settlements and arbitration awards in all of these categories and would be happy to consult with you or a loved one about their rights to one or more of these remedies.
When you suffer an injury at work, you have a right to seek and apply for workers' compensation benefits under the Illinois Workers Compensation laws. The laws are complex, however, and filing an injury claim on your own can be daunting. If you have a work-related injury in Illinois, you need an Illinois workers' compensation lawyer to ensure that you get the financial compensation you deserve.
At the Law Offices of William S. Wojcik, Ltd., in Oak Lawn, IL, we have over four decades of experience representing individuals with workers' compensation (also known as "workman's compensation" or "work comp") claims. Our clients include persons filing initial claims as well as individuals whose benefits have been wrongfully terminated. We advise workers' compensation claimants throughout Cook County, including: Oak Lawn, Evergreen Park, Alsip, Burbank, Chicago Ridge, Blue Island, Bridgeview, Palos Hills, Palos Heights, Palos Park, Hickory Hills, Worth, Western Springs, Crestwood, Orland Park, Oak Forest, Tinley Park, Homer Glen, Mokena, New Lenox and Frankfort.
Filing for Workmans' Compensation Benefits
Typically, the nature and severity of an injury, combined with the level of interference with an employee's work, will determine the extent of workers' compensation benefits. However, disputes may arise over the extent of injuries, how they were incurred, and how much they interfere with work. Often, many people who desperately need workers' compensation benefits are mistakenly denied, or have their benefits cut off. We can help.
All workers' compensation claims are handled on a contingency basis. Our fee is a percentage of the compensation we obtain for you. If we fail to get compensation, you pay no fee.
If you have been denied workers' compensation benefits or your benefits have been discontinued, contact the workers' compensation lawyers at the Law Offices of William S. Wojcik to schedule an appointment to discuss your claim. Evening and weekend hours are available by appointment.
