Maximizing Workers’ Compensation Benefits For Illinois Injured Workers

Last updated on October 4, 2023

If you have been injured on the job, you are likely to face a range of challenges: surgical procedures, rehabilitation, wage loss and in some of the worst cases — permanent disfigurement or total disability. If you then have to deal with an uncooperative insurance agency, life can begin to feel overwhelming. Your best option at this time is to consult with a qualified Illinois workers’ compensation attorney who can advocate for you and your rights.

Over Four Decades Of Legal Representation

I am attorney Brad L. Badgley. As the founder of Brad L. Badgley, P.C. Attorney at Law, I am a strong voice for injured workers against unjust treatment after their accidents. In my more than 41 years as a lawyer, I have represented a significant number of workers employed in various industries throughout southwest Illinois.

My past clients have faced many obstacles with insurance companies: lowball settlement offers, delayed benefits and denied claims. Regardless of your specific circumstances, I am here to advocate for you.

A Meaningful Track Record Of Success

Over the course of my career, I have tried hundreds of workers’ comp cases and have a meaningful track record of success in cases involving permanent disability, Section 8 and wage differential awards. I have dealt with nearly every workers’ compensation insurance carrier in the region and have established a strong reputation for obtaining favorable results.I am ready to help you address any type of work injury, including:
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Head injuries
  • Burns
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Amputations
  • Blindness
  • Injuries resulting in wrongful death

A Thorough Understanding Of The Workers’ Compensation Process

The Illinois workers’ compensation claims process is governed by strict laws, rules and procedures. Any workers’ comp case requires an attorney with a solid knowledge of these laws. While friends, family or a less-experienced attorney may have thoughts on your position, your rights and how to proceed — only a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer can properly assess your situation and provide practical legal options.

The Workers’ Compensation Act is also subject to regular modifications and, as such, you should only consult with a lawyer who regularly practices in this field. I handle these types of claims frequently. I make it a priority to stay abreast of the current laws and regulations, so I can best advise my clients on their options and rights.
