Worker’s Compensation

Skilled attorneys 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 worker’s compensation.  You are entitled to worker’s compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.

The experienced attorneys at Bleyer & Bleyer in Marion have helped workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace since 1954. They help workers obtain coverage for their worker’s compensation claims, including:

  • Compensation for permanent disability
  • Dependents’ recovery for worker’s death
  • Lost wages or salary
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Retraining costs

Waiving worker’s compensation
Accepting worker’s 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 worker’s compensation claim cannot. At Bleyer & Bleyer, our attorneys are skilled at analyzing whether you should waive your worker’s compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, and if you should also pursue a negligent third party.

Appealing worker’s compensation decisions
If your worker’s compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. Bleyer & Bleyer can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the Illinois worker’s compensation board.
