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
to schedule an appointment with our law office to discuss
your public employees workers' compensation claim.
We DO NOT charge you any fees unless we
secure workers compensation benefits for you.
