What Compensation Can We Recover for You?
Your circumstances and losses affect how much compensation you may deserve. There are two general options for seeking compensation for a work-related injury, which are:
- A workers’ compensation claim
- A lawsuit against a third party
Both of these options may be available to you. The option that we exercise may affect what compensation you are entitled to receive.
Possible Compensation From a Workers’ Compensation Claim
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission explains that most employers in Illinois must have some level of workers’ compensation insurance. So, if you were injured on the job, then you may receive coverage for:
- The monetary equivalent of ⅔ of your weekly wages (up to a certain maximum amount)
- The cost of reasonable medical care to diagnose and treat your injuries
- Disability benefits (if applicable)
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Death benefits (in fatal workers’ compensation cases)
Rules for calculating benefits, including maximum benefits, may vary based upon:
- Whether your injuries are temporary or permanent
- How much work you must miss
- Whether you are disfigured by your injuries
- Other case-specific considerations
These matters can become complicated quickly. Our firm understands workers’ compensation-related laws and practices, and we can deal with your claim for you.
Possible Compensation From a Lawsuit
Some workplace injuries warrant a lawsuit, which may be the case when someone other than your employer is liable for your losses.
Lawsuits generally provide more expansive coverage than insurance claims. If we bring a successful lawsuit for you, then you may receive a financial recovery for:
- Lost income and earning power
- Medical care
- Pain and suffering
- Therapy for trauma
- Lost quality of life
- Any other injury-related losses
There is generally no cap on the compensation that you can receive. We will explore the possibility of bringing a lawsuit for you. However, we would need to act quickly to take this legal action, as 735 ILCS 5/13-202 enforces a general two-year timeframe.

- Identify every one of your losses
- Calculate the cost of all of your losses

We may handle the same responsibilities for a lawsuit. Rather than negotiating with insurance companies, though, we will negotiate with other lawyers. If we need to bring your case to trial, then we will.
