Workers’ Compensation / Occupational Disease
Since 1974, we have been representing injured workers and their surviving spouses and other dependents of deceased workers in their workers’ compensation and occupational disease claims in Chicago and throughout Northern Illinois.
If you are injured or become ill due to work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Benefits may not be denied merely because you were at fault or had pre-existing conditions. Benefits may include the following:
● Treatment by providers of your choice, subject to certain limitations
● Weekly compensation for temporary total or partial disability
● Vocational rehabilitation if you are unable to return to the kind of work you did before your accident.
● Compensation for permanent partial disability or total disability
If your loved one was injured in a work accident or developed an occupational disease which resulted in death, you and other dependents may be entitled to death benefits, including funeral expenses.
From the very beginning, an injured worker or the spouse or dependents of a deceased worker need an experienced attorney working to obtain maximum benefits and to protect all rights under the law. The legal process can be long and confusing; we can make it smoother and simpler.
Consultations are completely free and confidential, and if you hire us to represent you, there is never a charge until we recover money for you.
