Personal Injury

If you are injured in Illinois as a result of someone else’s negligent or reckless actions, you may take legal action. Personal injury claims seek to hold negligent parties accountable for damages, including medical expenses, lost income/wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more. In the event that your loved one is killed due to negligence, you may be able to pursue a wrongful death claim and seek recovery for damages such as funeral costs, loss of companionship, loss of future earnings, and more.

Regardless of the injuries you or your loved one has suffered, we believe that you should not have to suffer alone. Our personal injury lawyers in Chicago, Aurora, and Champaign can help you navigate the legal system in pursuit of the justice and recovery you are owed.

Workers’ Compensation

In Illinois, workers in all industries have the right to seek workers’ compensation if they are injured on the job. However, the process of securing your rightful benefits can be incredibly complicated and daunting—even the smallest mistake can delay your benefits or prevent you from receiving them altogether. Unfortunately, many injured workers are denied benefits even when they do not make mistakes, but simply because their employer has rejected their claim.

At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, we assist clients with every aspect of workers’ compensation claims, including initial filing, appeals, and more. Our Chicago workers’ compensation attorneys assist clients throughout the state, including in Aurora, Champaign, and the surrounding areas. If you need assistance receiving your benefits, contact our team today.

Social Security Disability

If you suffer an injury that leaves you unable to work, you are entitled to file for Social Security Disability benefits. These benefits are designed to assist individuals who become disabled and are no longer able to support themselves. If you have a disability that prevents you from obtaining any gainful employment altogether, you may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income. This is a separate, needs-based federal program that is also overseen by the Social Security Administration.

Unfortunately, the process of applying for and receiving both SSD and SSI benefits is very complex. There is an extensive red tape that often prevents individuals from receiving their rightful benefits. At Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices, we can help you throughout each stage of the process. If your claim has been denied—which is often the case with first-time claims—we can help you appeal the decision and fight for the benefits you need.

I’ve had to know a few attorneys in my life and Jon was the best.

Unfortunately, I got badly injured at an athletic job. Run by a company that didn’t care about me. I needed an attorney and Woodruff, Johnson and Evans was recommended to me by a family member. That small gesture ended up being the best legal advice I ever received. Jon Walker defended me and made sure […]
