Workers’ Compensation

When you get hurt in a work-related accident, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation program is designed to help you cover medical expenses, recover lost wages and get fairly compensated for your injury. Unfortunately, the process can be incredibly complex and challenging. It’s not uncommon for companies and their insurance providers to attempt to deny, delay, and/or minimize workers’ compensation claims. An experienced workers’ comp lawyer can help you navigate and negotiate your claim so that you get the payout you deserve. Stephen R. Martay has extensive experience providing legal representation to clients pursuing workers’ compensation claims. 

Personal Injury

Stephen R. Martay also handles personal injury cases that are unrelated to workplace accidents and workers’ compensation claims. If you’ve been injured as the result of another party’s negligence or recklessness, you deserve to be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Stephen can handle a wide variety of personal injury cases, representing victims of auto accidents(involving cars, truck drivers, pedestrians, etc.), nursing home abuse/neglect, medical malpractice, slip-and-falls (premises liability claims), wrongful death and more. He will thoroughly investigate your case to recover critical evidence that shows who was the at-fault party and how their negligence directly caused your injuries. 

Injured Construction Workers

Construction workers face potentially fatal hazards and dangerous work conditions every day. Stephen R. Martay is an experienced construction accident attorney who has handled many cases involving falls, falling objects, equipment failure, back and neck injuries caused by heaving lifting, and other construction site accidents. He will thoroughly research and investigate your situation before negotiating with your employer’s insurers to maximize your claim. 

Neck & Back Injury

Serious neck and back injuries often occur as the result of heavy lifting, falls, vehicular accidents, and repetitive stress. These types of injuries commonly cause life-altering disability. If you suffered a neck or back injury while on the job and are having trouble recovering a fair payout through workers’ compensation, Stephen R. Martay can help you.

Head Injuries

Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI) tend to have long-lasting effects on victims. When it comes to work-related head injuries, common causes are falls, motor vehicle accidents, and falling objects. Stephen R. Martay knows how to investigate and present these claims so that victims are compensated for medical expenses, lost wages and receive fair compensation at the end of the claim.

Temporary Total Disability

If you are unable to perform your regular job duties following a workplace accident, you are entitled to collect TTD (Temporary Total Disability) benefits through workers’ compensation. These benefits are calculated at 2/3rds of your average weekly wage and are meant to compensate you while you miss work. Insurance companies, however, are notorious for underpaying these benefits or not paying them at all. Stephen R. Martay can help you make sure your temporary total disability benefits are paid and paid at the right amount.
