Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Southern Illinois

Helping You Receive Workers’ Compensation

i-workersIf you have been injured at work or on-the-job in Illinois, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. The workers’ compensation system’s purpose is to minimize the impact of work-related injuries or illnesses on workers and employers.

You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits whether you injured your back while lifting a heavy object, developed carpal tunnel syndrome, slipped and fell at work, got in an auto or commercial truck accident while driving on the job, or suffered other serious injuries.

The attorneys at Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. have been providing client-centered representation for our Southern Illinois clients since 1950. We have the experience to help you get the workers’ compensation benefits you deserve.

“I know that in these times a lot of people are living paycheck to paycheck. Often a workers’ compensation lawsuit is not about getting rich, it’s about putting food on the table, struggling to get back to even, all the while seeking to obtain the best medical treatment the worker desperately needs while receiving benefits while off on a work injury.” — Mark D. Hassakis, Attorney at Law.

What Benefits are You Entitled To?

If you have been hurt in a workplace accident, you are probably concerned about lost wages, the cost of medical care and possibly even issues of vocational rehabilitation and retraining. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to help you cover the costs associated with the accident so you can move forward with your life. At Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. we want to help you get the benefits you deserve so you can move on with your life.

If your employer refused to provide you with workers’ comp benefits or your benefits have been reduced, you need an experienced advocate at your side. The lawyers at Hassakis & Hassakis, P.C. can help. We handle denied claims and necessary medical treatments that are refused.

The Relationship Between Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Claims

For many injured workers, filing for workers’ comp is the only recourse. In some cases, however, there is the opportunity to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury claim. These claims are referred to as third party claims, because they are against parties other than the victim’s employer.
