Skilled attorney protecting Illinois workers
When you are injured or become ill at your workplace or a work-related activity, regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job, you may be eligible for workers compensation. You are entitled to workers compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.
At the law offices of Steven A. Crifase, Ltd. in Chicago, we have helped workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace for 30 years. We help workers obtain coverage for their workers compensation claims, including:
Waiving workers compensation
Accepting workers compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers compensation claim cannot. We are skilled at analyzing whether you should waive your workers compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, and if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
Appealing workers compensation decisions
If your workers compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. We can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Illinois workers compensation board.
