How We Help

Workers Compensation

We have been practicing workers compensation law in Peoria since our beginning and this gives us the knowledge and experience to help you acquire the settlement you need. Workers’ Compensation means paychecks while you are off work, quality medical care by someone you choose, and compensation for disability in the future. 

ALL injuries must be reported to your employer within 45 days of the injury.  Claims must be properly filed within 3 years of the injury date. Please, don’t wait to report your injury. Too often employees will wait to report and it becomes too late to help. When an injury occurs, take a stance and report it.

Furthermore, don’t count on an insurance company to protect you. Instead, come to Harvey & Stuckel and get the help you need from one of our lawyers!


THINGS YOU NEED TO DO:

  • Report the injury to your employer
  • Fill out an accident report if asked to do so
  • Get medical treatment – you can go to your own doctor
  • You do not have to accept treatment from the company doctor
  • Be open and honest with us about the nature of your injury
  • CALL US!

Personal Injury

Personal Injury means any injury you suffer that is caused by someone else, excluding your employer.  Personal injuries arise out of a variety of situations, including:

  • Automobile Accidents
  • Construction Accidents
  • Slip and Fall
  • Product Failure
  • Medical Malpractice

Most personal injury claims have to be filed within 2 years of the injury.  They are filed generally in the Circuit Court of the county where the accident takes place, or possibly in Federal Court if the parties are from different states. 

If you are the victim of someone else’s negligence, get the advice and direction you need from a free consultation with a lawyer from Harvey & Stuckel. Because we have been working as construction accident lawyers and auto accident lawyers in Peoria for many years, we have learned how to get our clients the best possible outcomes in their cases. A bad accident does NOT have to be a disaster; we can help make your life whole again! 

THINGS YOU SHOULD DO:

  • Get immediate treatment - don’t wait!
  • Don’t assume - tell your doctor or health provider how you got hurt.
  • DO NOT GIVE A STATEMENT TO AN INSURANCE COMPANY - you are not required to and it will only hurt your claim.
  • CALL US!
