Illinois Workers’ Compensation
Anyone that has any experience in Illinois workers’ compensation knows that it is a minefield for employers. With claimants directing their own treatment, a generous standard of compensability, no right to depose an injured worker, and generous benefit limits, employers are generally considered at a distinct disadvantage if litigation is required. This often causes attorneys for employers and their insurers to become reactionary in their approach to claim handling, reacting to the strategy of the claimant rather than directing the course of the litigation themselves.
The attorneys at Lemp & Murphy take a more aggressive, proactive approach to claim handling. We explore the issues that led to the claimed accident, advising employers on steps that they can take to avoid similar claims in the future. The attorneys also know how to best prepare a case for success at trial, with that knowledge resulting in a strong reputation for success. This reputation often leads to extremely favorable settlements for the clients of Lemp & Murphy, with opposing attorneys well aware of the battle that lies ahead of them. And, when settlement is not an option, the attorneys at Lemp & Murphy are second to none in trial results.
