What Kind of Attorney Do You Need?

Personal Injury Lawyer

Victims of personal injury accidents can recover costs from the at-fault party through a lawsuit or insurance claim. When an accident occurs due to negligence, injured victims can be left with staggering medical expenses. This, coupled with lost wages during recovery, creates additional stress for victims struggling to navigate a lawsuit. Personal injury attorney Terry W. Dodds dedicates his career to alleviating the stress undergone by accident victims, helping them recover full and fair compensation.

Workers’ Compensation Attorney

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act requires employers to maintain insurance coverage to provide for employees when a workplace accident occurs. After a work injury, employees can recover temporary or permanent disability benefits, lost wages, medical costs, and other costs associated with the injury. Working with a workers’ compensation attorney to recover damages ensures that injured employees are protected from unfair settlement offers and bad faith insurance tactics.

Workers’ Compensation Claim Denials Attorney

When a workers’ compensation claim is denied, claimants have the right to file an appeal. Claimants must initiate this appeal within 30 days of receiving the denial. Workers’ compensation claims are often initially denied due to clerical errors, lack of sufficient evidence, or bad faith insurance tactics. Workers’ compensation attorney Terry Dodds can help victims dispute these denials and obtain a fair settlement.
