Illinois workers' compensation is "no-fault," which means you should file a workers' comp claim if you are injured on the job regardless of who is at fault in the claim. Some employers still pressure employees not to file or claim that an injury is not work-related.
At Kanoski Bresney, our team of devoted attorneys in Bloomington handles difficult cases on a regular basis, including such injuries as:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Occupational diseases
- Aggravated pre-existing conditions
- Permanent impairment
- Permanent and total disability
- Work injury scars
- Broken bones
- Repetitive motion damage
- Knee, shoulder and joint injuries
- Back injuries
- And others ranging from minor to traumatic on-the-job injuries
Attorneys Larry A. Apfelbaum, Kathy A. Olivero and Charles N. Edmiston work to protect injured workers through settlement, negotiation and arbitration to maximize the compensation their clients deserve throughout central Illinois, from Springfield to Champaign to Bloomington.
