At Turner & Sackett , we are privileged to have represented individuals and families throughout Illinois in Workers’ Compensation claims since 1981. If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you may be entitled to benefits including temporary total disability, the right to seek medical care of your choice paid in full by your employer, and permanent disability settlements if the situation warrants.
Turner & Sackett protects these rights and others for injured workers and their families, securing just compensation in the Industrial Commission for loss of ability to work as effectively or fruitfully as before their personal injury. We have been able to assist these workers and their families to obtain benefits before the Industrial Commission in claims arising throughout our state.
The workers’ compensation insurance company may not have your best interests at heart. It is important to remember that your employer and their insurance company remain focused on the bottom line financials, and may seek to get your injury dealt with in the manner which is least expensive to them, but which may not be a good option for you, the injured person.
As workers’ compensation attorneys, Turner & Sackett understands serious injuries and medical conditions. We can help you obtain an impartial medical evaluation, and see that all of your rights under the law are protected. Our goal is to maximize the compensation you receive.
At Turner & Sackett , we evaluate all possible sources of compensation for our clients. If you are injured while on the job, you may have recourse to sources of compensation in addition to workers’ compensation. For example, if a forklift operator on a loading dock hits you, if you are injured as the result of a defective product, or if your injury occurred on a construction site, you may be able to claim compensation from multiple sources, as well as the worker’s compensation system.
It is important to remember that there are strict time limits in the workers’ compensation system, and if you fail to comply, you may forfeit your right to compensation. If you are injured while on the job, seek medical care and report the incident to your company immediately.
If you have been injured while on the job and feel you are entitled to benefits, call 1 (866) TURN-LAW to speak directly with an attorney, or contact us.
