What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation is a system of benefits provided for workers who sustain work-related injuries or diseases. The allowable benefits are established within the framework set by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act and the Illinois Workers’ Occupational Diseases Act. Generally, three areas of benefits are provided to workers who are injured on the job: (1) payment of medical bills; (2) compensation for time lost from work; and (3) compensation for the permanent effects of an injury or exposure.

Should I Consult With An Attorney?

It is important to consult with lawyers experienced in workers’ compensation cases and “third party” cases. It is important that an experienced attorney looks at every aspect of your case to ensure that all your rights are protected. Employers, insurance companies and defense attorneys are skilled at handling claims, and you will be at a severe disadvantage if you attempt to deal with them on your own. The lawyers at Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd. have been representing and protecting the working men and women of Illinois for over 50 years.

How Much Can My Attorney Charge Me For Handling My Workers’ Compensation Claim?

Your attorney is limited to 20% of the gross amount recovered in addition to the costs of the litigation paid by the attorney. However, there are some exceptional instances when the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission or the Workers’ Compensation Act determines the amount of fees to which the attorney is entitled.

Please remember, at Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we offer you a free initial consultation to evaluate your case and discuss fees.
