Denied Benefits In Illinois? Contact Our Lawyers.

Every day, people who suffer serious workplace injuries and occupational diseases are denied workers’ compensation benefits in Illinois. Sometimes, it is because they were not familiar with the rules and the workers’ compensation application process. Often, it is simply because companies and insurers have a financial incentive to deny claims and will do so at any given opportunity.
