Worker’s Compensation

Have you been injured at work? Do you know how to pursue a claim for benefits?
The battle to protect injured workers’ rights from attacks by business and the insurance industry is never ending. John Hustava represents workers who have been injured on the job. He guides clients through the process – from pursuing a claim to reaching a settlement with the employer or the employer’s insurance company.

John’s experience assisting clients with workers’ compensation claims includes a wide range of work injury scenarios:

  • Industrial accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Occupational illness or chronic injury claims
  • Trucking industry accidents for drivers, freight handlers and warehouse workers
  • Oil, gas or chemical refinery accidents
  • Health care worker claims
  • Personal injury litigation related to defective industrial equipment or machinery
  • Death benefits and wrongful death claims for fatal work injuries

Do you qualify? The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act provides benefits to those injured while working in Illinois, those hired in Illinois but injured in another state, or anyone working for a company whose principle place of business is in Illinois.

If you qualify and decide to pursue a claim, benefits provided through Workers’ Compensation may include:

  • Medical benefits
  • Your choice of physician(s)
  • Lost wages
  • Appointment travel reimbursement
  • Compensation for disfigurement
  • Lump sum settlement for your injuries
  • Penalties against the insurance company for failure to pay benefits
