There is no substitute for the experience and insight that John Lesaganich, the founder of our Illinois workers’ comp law firm, provides to injured workers throughout the state. Since 1978, he has worked on either side of the arbitration table, putting him in contact with nearly every state arbitrator working today. They know him. More importantly, he knows them.

Precedents in Illinois law exist that impact the average weekly wage for the injured worker and must be observed. The more they made in their tenure with their employer, the more money they will be paid while off work. Surgery is of important value as operative problems are automatically more serious. Period of time off is a factor as is a permanent defect or work restrictions.
