Twenty-seven years ago, in 1988, Illinois Governor James Thompson commissioned a study of the workers’ compensation system. Most significantly, the study concluded that an injured worker would be greatly handicapped by attempting to deal with the system without an experienced lawyer. Most injured workers would be making a mistake if they attempted to resolve or settle a permanent disability claim without legal representation. Since the dramatic changes that were passed in 2011 by the Illinois legislature, the above statement is even more true than it was 27 years ago. If you choose our firm, you can rest assured that our attorneys and staff are committed to the preservation and protection of our clients’ rights under the law.
