We can help you fight for the workers' comp benefits you need and deserve. Contact us as soon as possible for your free initial consultation. We have offices in Arlington Heights, Libertyville, Crystal Lake, Waukegan and Chicago.
Why Workers' Comp Exists
Workers' compensation is a system ideally intended to compensate workers who are legitimately injured during the course of their labor. It covers:
- Every worker injured in Illinois
- Illinois workers injured while working in another state
- Workers hurt while employed in another state for an employer based in Illinois
Back and neck injuries, herniated discs, carpal tunnel syndrome or another on-the-job injury can be a trying, sometimes life-changing experience. The worker has to deal with physical pain and financial duress as well, seeing to it that bills are paid and finding decent medical care. The demands of insurance companies, limited choice of doctors, frequency and amount of benefit checks, often add insult to injury, literally.
Where We Come in
Our workers' compensation attorneys at Newland & Newland, LLP have built a 15-year tradition of giving clients the individual attention they need when they have been injured at work. Insurance companies and their own lawyers are all too aware that you're up against statutes of limitations when it comes to acting to protect your legal rights, and that you might forfeit some of those rights if all aspects of your workplace injury case aren't handled with deadly accuracy.
This is where we come in. We will work to safeguard your interests, ensure you have access to good medical care, that your workers' comp benefit checks are sent on time, and your unpaid work comp claims are addressed immediately. As a prized and valued Newland & Newland, LLP client, we believe that you deserve no less personalized attention and professional results.
