Waukegan Work Injury Attorneys — Representing the Injured Worker

As a for-profit business, insurance companies owe their allegiances to the stockholders. They are in the business to make money and will attempt to pay you as little as possible — possibly much less than you deserve. They often take advantage of the fact that most people do not understand all the details of workers' compensation law.

Fortunately, Hannigan & Botha, Ltd., works to protect the rights of the working men and women. Both attorneys in the firm come from insurance backgrounds and know how the insurance companies work. We know the process these companies use to maximize their business profits, regardless of your medical pain or costs.
