More Than 35 Years of Experience Advocating for the Rights of the Injured
Maximize your benefits due and obtain some measure of justice or closure
My name is Kenneth Wolfe, Jr., and for more than 35 years, my workers' compensation law practice has helped Illinoisans from all walks of life get justice and the benefits that are due them as a result of their workplace injuries.
A highly personal personal injury practice
My practice does not follow the big-law-firm business model, for a reason. In managing a smaller number of cases, I can provide my clients with closer, more personal attention, and I can develop a deeper understanding of their needs and concerns.
My approach is to be more accessible so that I can facilitate attorney-client communication an essential component in successfully meeting the many deadlines and conditions that stand between your claim and the full benefits and compensation that you might be entitled to.
I press your case, and I don't let up
When it comes to workers' compensation claims, applicable legal agreements and state laws can be complicated. Witnesses may need to testify. And expert witnesses, too.
There also may be several ways to go about seeking redress, each with far-reaching implications. Typically, there are several strategic decisions to be made. And once a line of attack is determined, it's important that you or your representative stay on top of your claim. Why should your claim languish or you miss out on your full entitlement because a deadline has been missed or because a document has not been submitted correctly?
My practice is committed to providing those who have been wronged with a thorough, assertive and vigilant legal strategy and follow-through.

When, after all your hard work and commitment to the job, you are injured abruptly in a workplace accident, it can have devastating consequences for you, your family and your future employment prospects. The distressing aftermath of a workplace injury can leave you feeling vulnerable and alone.
My practice can help you obtain the compensation for your injuries or illness that you rightfully deserve, including:
-Compensation for permanent disability
-Dependents' recovery for worker's death
-Lost wages or salary
Qualifying for workers' compensation
You are entitled to workers' compensation for an injury or illness that occurred at your workplace or while you were engaged in a work-related activity regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. Even in the absence of your employer's fault or negligence, you can still receive the help you need through workers' compensation benefits.
Waiving workers' compensation
When you accept a workers' compensation payment, you forfeit your right to pursue other remedies against a negligent employer. If your employer has acted negligently, you might deserve award of pain & suffering and other damages that are not granted through a workers' compensation claim. I carefully review your case to determine how you can best recover the compensation you deserve.
Appealing a workers' compensation decision
If your workers' compensation claim is unfairly denied, you have only a short window of opportunity to appeal the unjust decision. I can help you maneuver through the overwhelming bureaucratic process of appealing to the Illinois workers' compensation board.
