At the Law Office of Timothy Henderson every case is thoroughly studied and prepared. We understand that often the best solution, one that maximizes the client’s benefits, is one negotiated with opposing counsel before a trial has begun. We are also aware that sometimes pre-trial discussions with opposing counsel do not offer the results our client needs and deserves. We examine all of the options available to our client and help them understand their best choice. We fight to maximize our client’s results.

If you have suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence or a workplace injury and you need an experienced personal injury or workers’ compensation attorney, let the Law Office of Timothy Henderson help.

Workmen’s Compensation
Any injury sustained while performing a work activity should be covered under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act regardless of fault. It is very important that the injured party report the injury as soon as possible - either verbally or in writing. Illinois law has been written to ensure you receive compensation for any workplace injury or work related illness. Attorney Timothy Henderson can explain all of your rights, help you follow the time line guidelines, and fight to make sure you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
Traffic Violation
Traffic violations in Illinois are taken very seriously and the consequences for violating traffic laws can be severe. Convictions can place your driving privileges in jeopardy, cause heavy fines, increase insurance premiums, require community service or even affect your freedom. When you receive a traffic ticket in Illinois, contact an experienced Illinois traffic attorney to help you understand the long and short term consequences.
Social Security Disability
Applying for Social Security Disability can sometimes be a difficult and confusing process. Let the Henderson Law Firm help you with your application, hearings and appeals. It is important that you receive the benefits to which you are entitles. We can help you determine if you are covered by SSDI and to what extent SSDI may be of help.
Personal Injury
If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness, it is important that you contact a personal injury attorney. The Henderson Law Firm offers free case consultations and will help you receive your maximum settlement quickly. We understand how stressful it can be to deal with the physical, emotional, and financial problems that follow a personal injury. We have the experience and commitment to help you through your difficult time.

The Henderson Law Firm helps people who have been injured due to another’s negligence.  We can answer your questions and guide you through the steps you need to take to recover physically and financially…

Auto, truck or motorcycle accidents, premises liability, wrongful death, nursing home abuse, dog bites, drunk driving accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents…. If you have suffered a personal injury because of another person’s negligence, I can provide the legal assistance you need.  Working throughout the Cook County and Chicago-land area, I have experience helping people secure the medical care and financial compensation they deserve and need.

The Henderson Law Firm has extensive experience with worker’s compensation in Illinois and can help provide the answers you must have…

  • Repetitive Use Trauma (e.g. Carpal Tunnel, Tendinitis, Disk Compression)
  • Occupational Illness or Disease
  • Aggravation of a Pre-existing Condition
  • Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) Caused by a Workplace Event
  • Low Back, Shoulder and Neck Injuries
  • Scarring and Disfigurement Benefits
  • Any Injury Caused in Whole or in Part by an Employee’s Job (regardless of fault)

In fact, any injury sustained while performing a work activity should be covered under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act (See the Illinois Handbook on Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Diseases). Under this act, a worker has certain rights and certain obligations. An injured worker in Illinois has the right to receive reasonable medical care to cure or relieve the effects of the injury.  You may also qualify for temporary total disability (TTD) benefits, temporary partial disability, vocational rehabilitation/maintenance benefits, permanent partial disability (PPD), permanent total disability (PTD), or, in case of a worker’s death, death benefits for surviving family members.  I can help you navigate through the specific obligations a worker has so you can receive the full benefits you need and deserve.


Traffic Ticket – Traffic Violations – Moving Violations

A moving violation in Illinois may result in points on your license, license suspension/revocation and/or a fine.

  • Failure to Yield to an Emergency Vehicle
  • Failure to Obey a Railroad-crossing Signal
  • Causing a Crash in a Construction Zone
  • Reckless Driving
  • Drag Racing or Street Racing
  • DUI or Aggravated DUI
  • Refusing to Take, or Failing, a Drug or Alcohol Test

The list above provides examples of violations that may result in suspension, revocation or cancellation of your Illinois Driver’s License.  The 2019 Illinois Rules of the Road has an even more complete list.  

If you simply pay the fine, this counts as a conviction on your record and could easily result in increased insurance premiums and certainly will add to the points against your license.   Every person charged with a traffic violation has the right to be represented by an attorney and  we can help you achieve the best possible result when you appear in court…speeding tickets, construction zone tickets, seat belt violations, driving with a suspended license, moving violations. A driver’s license has become a necessity in today’s world.  We have the experience and dedication needed to achieve the best possible results.

Residential and Commercial Real Estate

Buying or selling residential or commercial property can be involved.  We can help you navigate the steps you need to take to successfully conclude your real estate transaction.  Purchase and sales disputes, sales agreements, zoning and land use, buy-sell agreements, construction claims, leases, deeds and real estate contracts – all of these can present challenges.

Whatever your legal needs – real estate, personal injury, worker’s compensation, wills, power of attorney, nursing home abuse, dog bites, medical malpractice, premises liability, traffic violations – I can provide the assistance you need.

Let us Help you Receive your Lost Wages and your Maximum Settlement NOW

The legal procedures, forms, issues and time line involved with pursuing a workmen’s compensation claim can be confusing and frustrating. You need an experienced and dedicated workmen’s comp attorney who knows all of the benefits to which you are entitled. Call (312)444-9400 for a free consultation.

Workers’ compensation is a state-mandated insurance program that provides benefits for employees who are injured or become ill in the course of their employment. This type of insurance is available in all 50 states and is required for most employers in most states. In Illinois independent contractors, Federal workers and Chicago Police Officers are not covered under the state mandated insurance program – all other employees are covered.

Under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act, you are entitled to compensation, regardless of fault, if you suffered an injury on the job or as a result of the work you do that has required medical attention. The Workers’ Compensation Act provides benefits to cover your medical costs, a portion of your lost wages and a settlement for any permanent disability caused by your job…

If you suffer a work related injury it is very important that you follow specific steps in order to qualify for the benefits you need and deserve. You should immediately report the injury to your supervisor or boss. Your notice can be either verbal or written but a written notice helps eliminate any concern about the date of the injury. You will need to file an Application for Adjustment of claim form and document the medical attention you are receiving for your injury.

There are very specific steps and a very defined time line the injured party must follow in order to receive the maximum benefits available.

Consult an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney to help you understand your next steps.  The forms are sometimes complex and confusing.  Illinois’ no-fault workers’ compensation system requires employer notification within 45 days from the date of your injury.  An experienced attorney can assist you in meeting all of the required deadlines and make sure you receive all of the benefits to which you are entitled.  Attorney Tim Henderson can make sure you get your maximum benefit quickly.  Call (312)444-9400 for help with your claim.

According to the National Safety Council a worker is injured on the job every 7 seconds.  In 2017 Illinois reported  108,200 nonfatal workplace injuries and illnesses and 163 fatal occupational injuries.   A workplace injuries in Illinois covered by Workers’ Compensation include aggravations of pre-existing conditions, broken bones, sprains, occupational illnesses, repetitive trauma injuries, hearing loss, and more.

Most mental stress cases are not covered under the Illinois Workers’ Comp Act unless there has been an event that was “severe, sudden, and shocking.”  Claims made for this type of work-related issue are much harder to prove.  Do not, however, assume that you do not have a valid workers’ compensation claim.  It is important with this and any work related injury to consult with a mental health professional for a diagnosis.  After you have met with a mental health professional, contact a workmens’ compensation attorney for a free case evaluation.  Attorney Tim Henderson is an experienced Workmens’ Compensation Attorney and he will be able to determine if you have a valid workers’ compensation claim. Call (312)444-9400 for a free consultation and case evaluation.

Regardless of the type of workplace injury, it is important to report the injury to the supervisor in charge as soon as possible.  This notification can be done verbally or in written form but written notification helps establish the date of the injury.

Seek medical attention for the injury.  When you seek medical help be sure to inform the physician that your injury was work related.  Some injuries may not be immediately evident after an accident on the job (e.g. internal bleeding) and medical attention will help identify issues that are both obvious and not immediately apparent.

A will in Illinois is a written document that explains how you wish your property to be distributed upon your death. Other important issues that a will might cover are: guardians of minor children, duties of the guardians, creation of a trust, and naming the executor of the estate. If there is not a recorded will, the state distributes the estate according to Illinois law and the specific set of circumstances surrounding the estate.

We understand that every client has unique needs and goals. We listen to what your estate goals are and formulate a plan to meet those needs.  We will work with you to develop a comprehensive estate plan that may include a revocable or irrevocable trust or a living trust. 

An estate plan may involve provisions that help with asset protection and specific tax considerations.  A good plan will look at your current needs, your future needs were you to experience a disability, exposure to taxes and other charges associated with distribution of an estate as well as the eventual distribution of your assets to others.

If you are interested in learning how we can help with you with your will, contact us and arrange a free consultation (312) 444.9400. Read more…

Remember – You pay nothing unless we win your case!

 

 

Illinois’s Durable Power of Attorney law provides for two types of “statutory powers”: health care and property. This law also provides for the appointment of an “agent” and a “successor agent”.

This agent would be able to use his/her “health care power” to make healthcare decisions on your behalf if you become unable to make these decisions.

A “property power” will allow the “agent” to act in your behalf in whatever areas you have chosen if you become unable to make these decisions.

While forms to grant “power of attorney” are available online, it is always a good idea to consult an attorney to make sure that points important to you and your situation are covered. I can work with you to make sure these powerful advance directives deal with the financial and personal issues you want to manage.
