Workers’ Compensation Claims

Founded in 1973, Wiedner & McAuliffe has vast experience defending employers in hearings before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and Illinois state courts. Over 45 years later, we have grown into the Midwest’s leading workers’ compensation firm. Our clients represent a diverse range of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, consumer goods, aviation, ground transportation, construction, retail, healthcare, education, and non-profit organizations.

Our attorneys in this department dedicate their practice exclusively to workers’ compensation law and related issues. We provide our clients with effective counsel in all aspects of the defense process, including early factual investigation, diligent claim management, innovative strategy development, and zealous advocacy in resolution proceedings.

We are keenly aware of the financial burden imposed on employers and their carriers by workers’ compensation claims. At Wiedner & McAuliffe, we minimize our clients’ costs through aggressive negotiations, litigation to prevent unjustified awards and swift file closure. The industry average to close a file is 24 months. Client audits establish that our average is only 14 months.
