Now what do I do if I am injured or disabled

What if I have a work injury or if I am disabled and unable to work at all?

Is all lost because it seems as if everything is closed?

In person hearings, trials and meetings have ceased, however you may still take action on your claims.

Illinois Workers’ claims may still be filed, cases settled, and prepared for trial.

Social Security Disability claims may still be filed, cases prepared for hearing, and telephone hearings are being conducted.

We are still able to talk with you over the telephone and send emails and prepare your cases for the time when the courts are open again.

You should contact us to discuss what is happening to you. Feel free to contact Illinois Work Comp and Social Security Disability Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
