OWCP Lawyers Serving Illinois Federal Workers

Federal Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Federal employees who are injured on the job or suffer from a job-related illness are entitled to benefits from the Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs (OWCP). However, the OWCP rules and regulations are complex. If you may miss a significant amount of work, it is in your interest to have an experienced lawyer represent you.

The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., is a nationwide law firm that handles federal employment law cases exclusively. Our lawyers represent federal employees across the state of Illinois, including Chicago, Aurora and Springfield. To arrange a free OWCP case evaluation, call us today at or toll free at or send us an e-mail.

What Is the OWCP?

As a federal employee, you are not covered by state workers’ compensation programs. Instead, you need to file your claim with the federal Office of Workers’ Compensation Programs. The OWCP covers:

  • Injuries suffered from accidents occurring on the job, including auto accidents occurring in the scope of your employment (not counting daily commutes to and from your home)
  • Occupational illnesses or injuries such as repetitive stress or back injuries from your work activities

In addition to free medical care for your injury, you are entitled to disability benefits for as long as you are unable to return to your job. OWCP may also provide vocational rehabilitation services or disability retirement benefits.

At The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., your case will be handled by an experienced lawyer who handles the entire spectrum of federal employment issues. In addition to on-the-job injuries, our lawyers handle discrimination and Merit Systems Protection Board issues.
