Workers’ Compensation

Protecting the injured worker

At Brill and Fishel, we concentrate on using effective strategies and the most up-to-date knowledge of Illinois workers compensation law to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you are injured at work, or you become sick because of conditions you were exposed to at work, you are entitled to compensation. You may be entitled to payment of medical bills and compensation for any disability caused by the injury or illness. Other compensation can include vocational rehabilitation services, job training, and wage differentials.

However, in order to obtain this compensation, Illinois workers compensation laws require you to timely follow certain steps. You must notify your employer of a work-related injury within 45 days. If you were exposed to a chemical or other harmful substance that affected your health, we may be able to file a claim even years after the initial exposure.

The employer may tell you that you are not entitled to any money or other compensation. It is important for you to contact us to assure that you receive the benefits you are entitled to.
