Shoulder Injury At Work
You may not remember the exact incident that led to your shoulder injury. You may only know that you woke up one morning with debilitating pain that has kept you from working. Regardless of the circumstances, you can no longer do your job and are facing the possibility of being unable to work and provide for yourself and your family.
Workers’ compensation in Illinois can be a confusing, frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. Our firm only handles workers’ comp and other personal injury claims in Chicagoland, and our attorney, John S. Eliasik, has more than 17 years of distinguished experience helping workers from all industries who need an aggressive advocate in the legal system.
Our Goal: Maximize The Compensation You Receive For Your Work-Related Injury
Any successful workers’ compensation claim requires a careful strategy. This involves continuous medical evaluation and treatment, and complete documentation of an injured worker’s condition. This vital information not only establishes a record that will be used when seeking compensation from an employer’s insurance company, but also becomes the basis for determining when a worker has reached maximum medical improvement (MMI), which is when most settlements are negotiated and approved.
We understand that our clients have much riding on the compensation they receive when unable to work. We are aggressive in how we handle cases, but we are also strategic. We understand when it is best to propose a settlement and when clients are better served continuing treatment to see if they have yet to reach MMI. We are also experienced handling cases before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) and bring years of trial experience to cases that require the skill of a veteran trial lawyer.
Our firm also handles third-party personal injury claims against negligent contractors and subcontractors.
