Why Hire GWC for Your Workers Compensation Case?
New Illinois workers compensation laws are designed to favor employers and insurers. This means it is very easy to make a mistake while filing your workers compensation claim that can jeopardize your ability to receive full compensation for your workplace injury.
Our attorneys are the premier workers compensation experts in the state. No one represents more union members than we do and we have the manpower and resources necessary to protect your interests.
Our large staff has the ability to get your case into court as quickly as possible so you can receive the workers compensation benefits necessary to allow you to recover and return to work. Smaller firms often have a difficult time dedicating adequate resources to individual cases and often fail to get teachers the treatment they deserve.
