Woodruff & Haugen Hosts Upcoming Seminar About Workers’ Compensation Claims in Illinois

Attorney Blog

Our lawyers at Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices will be hosting a seminar to help inform the public about workers’ compensation claim filings, management, appeals, and laws in Illinois. The seminar will take place at the I Hotel and Conference Center on Thursday, September 27th, 2018 at 5:30 PM. undefined

Workers who suffer injuries on the job are confronted with numerous obstacles when they try to file for workers’ compensation benefits. Not only do workers face many challenges when seeking their benefits, but employers and insurance companies are also slow to approve payouts for injury claims. When an employer or insurer attempts to stall a payout, the worker will need help from a workers’ compensation attorney to obtain their benefits.

Attorney Casey Woodruff and Attorney Russell Haugen will present a seminar titled “What Every Injured Worker in Illinois Should Know,” to spread awareness about worker rights and important details related to workers’ compensation claims. The I Hotel and Conference Center is located at 1900 South First Street, Champaign, Illinois 62820. Refreshments will be offered to those in attendance.

During the conference, Attorneys Woodruff and Haugen will discuss the following:

  • Understanding what benefits an injured worker is entitled to
  • Basic worker rights
  • Whether or not an injured worker can be terminated after suffering an injury
  • Workers’ comp approved medical providers

When Russell Haugen took my case, I never had to follow-up as he ensured that I was always updated on the status.

It was a very long process for me as I started my case with one of their former colleagues then it was assigned to Russell Haugen, who worked diligently to finalize the case. From the beginning, he took the necessary time to clearly explain the position of the case, the potential timing of all the […]
