Workers' Compensation

Tough and Experienced Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers in and around Kankakee

Have you been injured at work? Are you afraid that your employer may try to delay or deny your claim? Are you worried about how you will pay your bills or how you will get the medical care you need?

When you have been injured on the job, you need a tough, aggressive and experienced attorney to fight for your rights. Employers and their insurers often look for ways to deny your claim, alleging that you are still able to work or that your injury was not work-related. In reality, they are only trying to protect their own financial interests. In these cases, it is best to hire an attorney whose only concern is your best interest. That attorney is Joseph R. Yurgine.

At the Law Offices of Joseph R. Yurgine, P.C., we have fought for the rights of injured people throughout Kankakee and the surrounding communities for over 25 years. We will stand strong at all times, helping to hold all responsible parties accountable. Because of our reputation for tenacious representation, many of our new clients come to us as referrals from former clients.

To set up a confidential consultation, contact our office or call us at 815-939-3322.

Our Workers' Compensation Practice

We handle all matters related to worker's compensation claims, whether you have just suffered a workplace injury and need to file or your claim has been denied and you want to appeal. We will help you prepare all the documentation required throughout the process and will be an aggressive advocate for you in all hearings or proceedings, including appeals.

We protect the rights of people who have been injured in factory or construction site accidents, as well as individuals who cannot work because of repetitive trauma, such as tendinitis or carpal tunnel syndrome. We handle all types of injuries, including fractures, herniated discs, rotator cuff injuries, fibromyalgia and paralysis (paraplegia or quadriplegia).

Fighting for Your Rights

If you get injured in the workplace in Illinois, you have rights under the Illinois workers' compensation laws. You should seek legal assistance as soon as possible, but particularly in the following situations:

  • Your medical bills are not being paid
  • You are not receiving your disability check
  • Your disability is serious and permanent
  • Your case has been settled, but you are not receiving payments
