Workers Compensation

OUR CHICAGO PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY CAN FIGHT FOR YOU

No one deserves to be hurt while performing their duties on the job. Worse yet, no one should have to worry about how they will pay their medical expenses and bills while they are incapacitated from their injuries. When your employer does not want to help you after suffering from a worksite injury, you may need to take legal action by filing a workers’ compensation claim with an experienced Chicago personal injury lawyer from Boudreau & Nisivaco, LLC.

Workers’ compensation laws are designed to provide protection to individuals who have suffered injuries from an on-the-job activity or a duty that is related to their job. Employees who are injured on the job are provided with provisions to collect monetary benefits without necessarily pursuing litigation.

ON-THE-JOB INJURIES CAN CAUSE LIFELONG CONSEQUENCES

If you have been injured while working, you simply cannot hope for the best and accept the first compensation your employer or insurance company provides you. They likely do not have any idea of the pain you are going through and only want to cover a minimal amount.

Some serious injuries that could result from your worksite accident include:

  • Broken bones
  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Brain injury with permanent consequences
  • Lingering illness or damage due to exposure to toxic substances

HOLDING THE LIABLE PARTY RESPONSIBLE

When someone else is responsible for your injury – whether through negligence or recklessness – they need to be held accountable. At our law firm, we can help you find restitution and justice for your unwarranted pain and suffering that occurred while you were on the job or performing job-related duties.

Benefits we can help you win in a settlement or in court include:

  • Payment of medical expenses
  • Income compensation while you recover
  • Lump-sum settlements
  • Disability benefits
  • Complete coverage of rehabilitative procedures
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FOR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

If you have been injured while at work, you need to take action quickly before your window of legal recourse officially closes. You must notify your employer within 45 days after the date you became aware of your injury or illness. It should be noted that this is not necessarily 45 days after you were in an accident – it is only 45 days after you noticed the injuries. Once you have notified your employer of your onsite injuries, you are bound by thetwo-year statute of limitations within to file your claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission.

Testimonials

I came to John Nisivaco after being in a hit and run accident as a pedestrian. It was a very tough time for me and my family. When we contacted John we felt much more at ease. The whole experience was alleviated by John and the firm. He was upfront with us and told us all of our options and possible outcomes. With the case, we were always informed about its progress in a timely manner. I’m glad we came to John because he made our experience with my injury much easier and it was settled very quickly. He also looked ahead and made sure that I would be able to handle my settlement responsibly. I would recommend John Nisivaco to anyone who is thinking about hiring a personal injury attorney.

I just want to thank you so much for helping me get through a difficult time. I trusted you completely and you didn’t let me down. You were very professional and caring. My sister is going through a similar situation with her daughter and this incident happened over 3 years ago and she has gotten nowhere. I would highly recommend Boudreau & Nisivaco. You are the best!

A few years ago, I used the law firm of Boudreau & Nisivaco for a work related injury and I was very impressed with their services. I received status updates in the mail and phone calls on my case as it progressed. Even after the settlement, my lawyer continued to call me to ask how I was doing. I would definitely recommend the Boudreau & Nisivaco law firm.
