Injuries suffered while on the job can sideline or end a career. Workers’ compensation can help fill the gap created by a loss of income. However, the process is more complicated than filing a form and collecting a check. You need the level of experience our attorneys provide at Hall, Rustom & Fritz LLC. They fight to protect the rights of hardworking Illinois professionals facing an uncertain future.
Questions arise following an injury suffered on the job. How will you respond to an injury suffered at work? Should you make a claim shortly following the injury or should you wait? Is it a compensable injury if it is repetitive with no immediate and single injury?
Whether you are a white collar or blue collar professional, take action following a work-related accident. If you have been injured on the job, contact us at 309-699-4691 or toll free at 877-699-4691.
