Personal injury, Workers' Compensation, disability, and death cases are the only work we do. We don't handle personal injury cases as a sideline of our practice. It's what we do day in and day out. Brian McGovern and Steve Hanagan have over 50 years combined concentrated experience representing personal injury victims, injured workers' and their families in injury, disability and workers' compensation claims all over southern Illinois.
For over 70 years the Hanagan name has enjoyed the highest reputation for quality and caring representation of local personal injury and workers' compensation clients and their families in all of southern Illinois. The Hanagan & McGovern law firm carries on that tradition.
In fact, when people involved in the business become injured themselves, they call us for help. Over the years we have represented and advised doctors, lawyers, insurance adjusters, vocational rehabilitation counselors, hospital business office workers, insurance claims attorneys, and private investigators with their own injury claims. When people who know the system rely on us to handle their claims it says a lot about the quality of our reputation. You can count on us as well.
Our attorneys will sit down with you and discuss your situation and tell you what we can do to help. We will meet with you personally to explain your rights and how we can provide the representation you deserve to win your case. We do not charge a fee when you call us, or even when you come to discuss your case with us. We only charge a fee after we have recovered benefits for you.
If you have difficulty making it to our offices, we can meet with you in your home, hospital room, or numerous other locations.
If you, a close friend, or family member are injured or are being denied insurance benefits, you need a local attorney with a proven track record and years of experience fighting workers' compensation, injury and disability claims. When your family's future depends on results, don't settle for the general practice lawyer down the street. You need a lawyer with experience and a proven reputation fighting nothing but workers' compensation and injury claims. You need a lawyer that can deliver results. You can count on us to handle all injury, disability and death claims including:
We care about our clients and their needs. Being injured and out of work is very stressful on a family. It can be overwhelming at times. Having been involved with thousands of injury victims over the years, we know this all too well. We offer patience and understanding during these trying times. We work to relieve you of the burdens associated with your claim, and provide results for you as quickly as we can
Medical care is expensive. Frequently employers and insurance companies try to save money by refusing to authorize needed medical care. If your injury or workers' compensation claim has been denied or you are being denied medical treatment, we can help you get the medical care you need.
Employers and insurance companies don't care about your credit rating. Many times they refuse to pay for medical treatment you already received. We can keep the collection agencies off your back and get those bills taken care of, usually without any harm at all to your credit rating.
We take the time to sit down with you and explain how the legal system can help with your specific problem, what benefits it has to offer, and give you some basic time lines that you can expect for your claim. If you already have a settlement offer, we'll go over it with you and tell you whether we think it is fair and whether we can do better for you. If not, we'll tell you so - up-front and at no charge.
If the insurance carrier is denying your rights, we will fight them every step of the way to secure the benefits you deserve.
