Workers' Compensation

Experienced ♦ Responsive ♦ Attentive

If you have suffered a workplace injury but are not getting the benefits you are entitled to under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, you need an experienced attorney to pursue those benefits for you. Whether your claim has been denied, your temporary disability payments are not being received, bills are not being paid, your medical authorization is in dispute, you believe you have been fired because you filed a claim, or if you are simply ready to obtain the most favorable settlement available in your case, I can help.

At the office of attorney James P. Leahy, I have over 30 years of experience representing individuals throughout the western and northwestern suburbs of Chicago. I will strive to give your case the attention you deserve, carefully explaining all your options to you so that you can make informed decisions. I will promptly return calls and e-mails and will keep you advised of any and all developments in your case, focusing on both your immediate needs and your long-term interests.

My Workers' Compensation Practice

I represent men and women who have been injured on the job, whether the injury was caused by a traumatic event, such as a car accident, slip and fall, falling object or defective piece of equipment, or as a result of repetitive stress, such as carpal tunnel or foot/back injuries related to concrete floors or other hazards. I will represent you throughout the entire workers' compensation claims process, whether you have just suffered the injury or your claim has been denied (at any level).

I have decades of experience successfully handling workers' compensation claims. I know that your employer or the insurance carrier will have attorneys working aggressively to represent their interests. I will do the same for you. I will aggressively fight to get you the compensation you need and deserve, whether it's temporary or permanent disability benefits to ease the financial strain related to work-place injuries.

All workers' compensation claims are handled on a contingency basis. My contingency fee is generally 20% of what I am able to recover for you. I will only charge attorney fees if I am able to recover benefits for you.
