Workers' Compensation Lawyers In Elgin
When people are injured in the workplace, their physical and financial well-being is threatened. Employers and insurance companies often work to minimize the benefits paid to injured employees. Sometimes employers and workers compensation insurers simply ignore payment for some of the benefits to which an employee may be entitled, such as payments for permanent partial disability, temporary partial disability, vocational rehabilitation, and death benefit when a parent or spouse is killed on the job.

Trial Lawyers Standing Up For Injured Workers
Regardless of the type of injury you have sustained, we can help. Our firm handles construction accident injuries, factory worker injuries, office worker injuries, electrical power line injuries and more. As leading Illinois workers’ compensation attorneys, we also work to discover any third-party claims for employees injured at work.
In some cases, an injured employee may be able to recover compensation from the employer’s workers compensation insurer, and also recover additional compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim against someone other than their employer who contributed to causing the injury. It is critical in these types of cases that a client choose an attorney who is familiar with both workers compensation and personal injury claims, so that the client will receive all of the compensation to which he is entitled. At Bingham Law, we specialize in both personal injury and workers compensation law, with years of experience handling the legal relationship between both types of claims – experience which is especially important in construction accident cases, and other work injury cases where accidents are caused in part by someone other than a client’s employer.
We assist clients who have had their workers’ comp claims denied, and in appropriate cases we file emergency petitions for benefits. If you have been denied workmans’ compensation benefits, it is important that you do not go through the appeals process alone. The workers’ compensation system is an adversarial process; your employer will have legal representation, and so should you.
