Edwardsville Workers' Compensation Attorney

If you are hurt on the job to the extent that it prevents you from working or requires you to switch to a job that pays less money, you may qualify for workers' compensation. Successfully filing for workers' compensation is a complicated matter. It is a smart decision to be represented by an experienced workers' compensation attorney who has a track record of helping individuals collect the full amount they deserve.

At Steele Law Offices, LLC, in Glen Carbon, Illinois, we help injured workers in both Missouri and Illinois file workers' compensation claims. We are knowledgeable about the subtleties and intricacies of the laws in both states. We are also familiar with the practices and procedures before the Missouri Division of Workers' Compensation as well as the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.

A denied claim is not the end of the line. Insurance companies make money by denying claims. If you receive a letter denying your workers' compensation case, contact an experienced workers' compensation attorney who will guide you through the appeals process.

We assist workers in a variety of areas at all stages of claims, including:

  • Notice requirement and coverage — We advise on how to report a work-related injury to your employer to lay the proper groundwork for full benefits.
  • Disputed cases — If the employer rejects your claim as not disabling or not work-related, we can file an appeal and appear on your behalf in front of the hearing board.
  • Degree of disability — With proper documentation, contesting your disability rating could mean thousands of extra dollars over the course of your claim.
  • Correct calculation of benefits — Employers are notorious for errors in determining wage-loss benefits, such as overtime, bonuses and second jobs.
  • Third-party lawsuits — We can identify any negligent third parties to sue for damages such as pain and suffering.

Our main objective is to expedite the process and maximize your benefits to restore your immediate and future financial security.
