Hanagan & McGovern Firm Overview

Our Practice

We spent our careers obtaining the knowledge and learning the skills necessary to be the most effective counsel to represent people in workers comp, personal injury, and disability claims. Injury, disability and workers compensation is the only work that we do.  All day and every day.  That makes a big difference in the results you can expect from your lawyers.


Our Clients

We represent union members and non-union workers alike.  Everyone from electricians to coal miners, plumbers, housewives, doctors, lawyers, accountants, students, state employees, sanitation workers, fast food restaurant employees, and everyone in between.  Even insurance company personnel and their claims attorneys have relied on us for honest and aggressive representation when they have been injured. 

Our Pledge

Communication is the key to a successful relationship with a lawyer. We pledge to be be personally available to you.  You will meet with your lawyer, and we will be available for you today and in the future. Our lawyers and staff take the time to listen to you. We answer phone calls and we return phone calls, usually the same day.


Coverage Map of southern Illinois

While our lawyers have handled lawsuits and workers compensation claims all over the State of Illinois, and in various parts of the nation, the vast majority of our workers' compensation clients have been from the southern Illinois region.

The attorneys in our firm cover a wide area of southern Illinois as shown on our Coverage Map.  With the high cost of gas these days, we offer an added benefit and will make the trip to meet you near your home town.  We frequently travel to outlying areas such as Olney, Albion, Carmi,West Frankfort, and Effingham, Illinois to meet with workers' compensation clients.

If you live in this area, ask your co-workers, friends, and neighbors.  Chances are one of us has represented one of them or a family member over the years.
