Workers’ Comp Settlements & Awards

Reputable Illinois Attorneys Secure Significant Awards in Workers’ Comp Appeals and Cases

Talented Springfield lawyers help secure lifetime benefits for our clients

Workplace injuries can bring major changes to your life. They may leave you partially or permanently disabled and unable to continue working in the career to which you’ve dedicated your life. Even smaller injuries may cause temporary total disability and keep you from working for long periods of time, while you and your family scramble to make ends meet. At Boshardy Law Office, P.C. in Springfield, our attorneys have a reputation for securing the workers’ compensation settlements our clients need and deserve, backed by our more than 20 years of serving communities across central Illinois.

Success across a wide variety of case types

Our legal team has a long track record of offering effective representation to our clients in many different types of workers’ compensation cases. We have secured outstanding awards for the following workers:

  • Truck drivers. We secured lifetime payments for a 63-year-old truck driver who suffered neck, back and shoulder injuries that required four surgeries to correct. No suitable labor market could be found for this individual, and our attorneys secured permanent and total disability payments expected to total more than $780,000.
  • Pipe fitters. Our attorneys represented a union pipefitter who sustained wrist and arm injuries as a result of his work. His employer disputed liability for the injury, which prevented the worker from returning to his former job. He later found new employment, but we secured him $146,818 for unpaid disability payments and $550 per week — paid for life — to make up the difference in wages between his old position and his new one.
  • Press operators. We secured a $275,000 lump-sum workers’ compensation settlement for a pressman who suffered repeated-trauma injuries to his knees and arms. The employer disputed liability in this case, but we were able to prove otherwise.

The experience you need for your workers’ compensation case

Many law firms talk about lifetime benefits, but our lawyers have extensive experience securing compensation to help injured workers care for their families after becoming permanently disabled by work injuries. We also seek wage-adjustment payments for workers whose injuries prevent them from returning to their jobs or force them to take positions at lower pay. Trust us to deliver diligent representation that puts your future on the right track.
