Many victims of workplace injuries in Illinois don’t know exactly how much workers’ compensation can do for them. Fortunately, our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers understand the law and know how to pursue every benefit to which you’re entitled.

The state’s workers’ compensation law is designed to provide you with money you need at an absolutely crucial time in your life. While it can be a difficult system to navigate, it is a system that, in theory, is designed to help victims like you.

Workers’ compensation can:

  • Cover medical expenses
  • Replace two-thirds of your weekly salary if you miss time at work
  • Provide lifetime payments if you suffer a permanent disability
  • Provide benefits in the tragic case of a fatal workplace accident

Workplace injuries can be devastating, and when they prevent you from returning to work and earning a living in the way you are accustomed to, they can severely affect the rest of your life. We will do everything we can to ensure that workers’ compensation is there for you.

If you live in the state of Illinois and you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer, please call Harvey L. Walner & Associates, Ltd. today at (312) 313-2888 for a free consultation.
