Brent Eames Wins Line of Duty Disability for Joliet Police Officer

Written by Brent Eames

June 12, 2024

Attorney Brent Eames is one of the top workers’ compensation attorneys for police officers in Illinois. He has represented police officers all across Illinois in claims related to work injuries, including workers’ compensation, PEDA, and duty disability pensions. Recently, he obtained a victory before the Pension Board of the Joliet Police Department which granted a fully favorable decision on behalf of an officer who suffered a career-ending injury. The Joliet officer’s application was contested by an independent medical examiner who opined that he was not disabled. To counter this opinion, Attorney Eames obtained the live testimony of the officer’s treating medical professional to offer detailed opinions of the officer’s diagnosis, prognosis, and status as permanently disabled. Following this testimony, the Board voted unanimously to grant the line of duty disability pension.
