Danville Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Workers’ compensation is an important right afforded to workers who have been injured on the job. It gives them the money they need to pay for their medical bills and lost wages following their accident so that they have time to recover. However, all too often, the companies that control workers’ compensation withhold benefits from the people who need them most.

At the Danville workers’ compensation firm of Spiros Law, P.C., we believe this practice is wrong. We believe that injured workers deserve to get the benefits they and their families need, and we are willing to fight for this belief. If you or someone in your family has been denied the workers’ compensation benefits they deserve following their workplace accident, we would like to help. Contact us today by calling (217) 443-4343 to find out more about what we can do for you.

Workers’ Comp Practice Areas

Our Danville workers’ compensation attorneys have a wide range of experience helping clients with their cases. We may be able to help you with cases involving:

  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Permanent Disability
  • Temporary Disability
  • Workplace Injuries

Many injured workers wrongly believe that they have to prove that their employer was negligent in some way in order to collect money for the accident. This is patently untrue. A worker’s compensation claim is not a personal injury lawsuit against your employer, it is simply a claim for compensation from the employer’s insurance policy. These policies exist to help workers with the expenses associated with an on-the-job accident, and an experienced lawyer can help you get the full amount of compensation that you are owed.

The Statistics

Many workers think that disability injuries will never happen to them. Unfortunately, this may not be the case. According to statistics, one in five workers will experience a serious injury or illness during their lives that will cause them to miss a year or more of work.
Every year, around 4 million workers are injured or become ill because of conditions at work. Workers’ compensation exists both to benefit workers and to protect employers from lawsuits. If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, your employer may be taking advantage of you. The Danville workers’ compensation attorneys of Spiros Law, P.C. want to help you fight back.

Workers’ Compensation FAQs

What type of accidents fall under workers’ compensation?

Most employers are required to have workers’ compensation insurance to accommodate employees who are injured on the job. This insurance covers only individuals who are employees of the company and does not include any independent contractors hired by the company. Workers’ comp covers any injuries that occur because of a job-related accident. This definition could mean that an accident happened in the workplace or in a job-related situation outside of the workplace. Workers’ comp can cover preexisting conditions that were worsened because of the job, or even repetitive motion injuries that occur because of prolonged wear during the job. Most obviously, workers’ comp covers injuries that occur because of accidents during the job, such as a slip and fall, electric shock, or machinery malfunction accidents. If you were injured in a work-related accident, and are questioning whether workers’ comp will cover your injuries, contact the attorneys at Spiros Law, P.C.

How long do I have to file a workers’ compensation claim?

The time limit for filing workers’ compensation claims vary from state to state. Illinois law outlines the conditions and benefits of workers’ compensation claims within the state. In order to be compensated for your work-related injuries through workers’ comp, you generally must file the claim within three years of the date the injury occurred, or within two years of the last workers’ comp payment, whichever is later. It is also important to note that there is a separate deadline for notifying your employer of your injury. In order to receive workers’ comp, you have to notify your employer either orally or in writing within 45 days of the injury. If you have been injured in a work-related injury, you want to file a claim as soon as possible. Contact an attorney at Spiros Law, P.C. to start the filing process.
