Peoria Illinois Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
People injured on the job are entitled to be compensated for their injuries. At Benassi & Benassi, our workers’ compensation attorneys understand the serious effects workplace injuries can have on injured workers and their families.
Experienced Peoria Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
Our firm handles workers’ compensation claims before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC), formerly known as the Illinois Industrial Commission, the body that governs workers’ compensation in the state of Illinois.
We realize that people injured on the job often have many workers’ compensation questions. We are committed to taking the time to understand our clients’ concerns, as well as their injuries, and working with them to get the compensation they deserve.
In Illinois, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system of benefits paid by employers to workers who are injured or suffer work-related occupational diseases such as mesothelioma or cancer. Employees can receive benefits for medical costs and for any partial or full disability resulting from the injury.
When most people think of workers’ compensation injuries, they envision serious accidents such as construction workers falling or electrical engineers being burned or shocked. White collar injuries such as repetitive trauma injury (including carpal and cubital tunnel injuries) are equally common and reported far less often.
Our Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys routinely handle workers’ compensation claims related to one-time events, as well as repetitive trauma injuries. Our clients come from a variety of industries including construction, manufacturing, medical professionals, executive assistants and barge workers.
