Workers Compensation - Public Employees
Illinois Firefighter & Policemen Workers' Compensation Lawyer

If you are a public employee suffering from a workplace injury, Connor Law Offices can help you secure the benefits you need under the Public Employee Disability Act and Public Employee Safety & Benefits Act.

At Connor Law Offices, we regularly represent police officers, firefighters, and corrections officers injured in the line of duty, saving and protecting lives in Springfield and throughout Illinois. We handle continuation of benefits claims so public employees can receive temporary, total, partial, or long-term disability payments under the Public Employee Safety & Benefits Act. We also handle settlement for injuries under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act. Workers receive 2/3 of their average weekly wage under this provision. In addition, we assist public employees in filing for duty disability pensions. If a police officer or firefighter is injured and unable to return to work, the worker receives 65% of his normal average weekly wage as a pension.

Workers' compensation issues are different for public employees than for private employees. Public Employees have numerous additional benefits not covered by the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act.

Even in the public employee arena, a workers' compensation claim can be denied for a variety of reasons. Sometimes there is a dispute over the cause, nature, severity, or impact of an injury. If your claim has been denied, we can help you file a strong appeal that details your injury, its cause, and its impact on your ability to perform your job duties. We know how important workers' compensation benefits are to you. If you are unable to earn an income, workers' compensation benefits can be a financial life preserver.

If your workplace injury occurred in an auto accident, we can assist you with a third party personal injury claim. if your injury has resulted in a permanent disability, we can explore securing Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.
