Workers' Compensation

Our firm represents local governments and other individually and collectively self-insured entities in workers' compensation claims before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.

The firm defends these claims in an aggressive manner, pursuing the facts and evidence necessary to identify fraudulent claims and reduce unnecessary lost time and medical expenditures. In our continuing efforts to control costs for our clients, we have pioneered the use of paralegals to process workers' compensation claims. For additional information, please see our chapter, Ten Things Governmental Officials Don't Know About Workers' Compensation, which is included in Ancel Glink's publication, Ten Things You Need to Know About 14 Local Government Issues, available in the firm’s Resource Center. The firm's worker's compensation practice also includes defense of Longshoremen's Act claims.
