Illinois Workers' Compensation and Work Injury Lawyers

Illinois law provides protections for injured workers. If you have suffered a workplace injury, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. However, you may lose these benefits if you don't take action in a timely matter.

Come to the law office of Madsen Sugden & Gottemoller in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Our attorneys will effectively manage your case and aggressively represent you throughout the entire process.

Contact us today to schedule your free, confidential consultation with one of our experienced workers' compensation attorneys.

The Initial Steps in a Workers' Compensation Claim

Our attorneys provide quality legal representation for workers who have sustained all types of injuries on the job. At your free initial consultation, we will begin by verifying that you have reported your injuries to your direct supervisor. To secure your benefits, you must report your injuries within 45 days of the event.

During your consultation, we will take the time to listen to your concerns and understand your situation. From there, we attend to your legal issues while you receive medical treatment for your injuries.

Negotiating Workers' Compensation Benefits for You

Even before your workers' compensation claim is resolved, you may be entitled to temporary disability payments from your employer. Our attorneys will assess your case and, if need be, petition the Workers' Compensation Commission for disability payments while you are unable to work.

After resolving any temporary pay issues and upon receipt of your medical records, we will negotiate payment for partial or total disability caused by your job injuries. To effectively advocate on your behalf, an attorney must have extensive knowledge of the law and a great deal of experience negotiating with employers and insurance companies. At Madsen, Sugden & Gottemollar, our attorneys have the necessary skills and experience.

Appealing and Litigating Your Workers' Compensation Claim

We work diligently to ensure that your insurance carrier fully and fairly compensates you for your job-related injuries. To ensure that our clients' rights are protected, we serve clients at all stages of this process.

If the company disputes our claims and will not meet our demands, we will take your case to a workers' compensation arbitrator. In the event that an arbitrator's decision needs to be appealed, we represent clients throughout the appellate process. Our record of achievement speaks for itself.
