Workers' Compensation

Chicago Workers' Compensation Lawyer

As an employee, you work hard to contribute to the success of your company. You meet deadlines, achieve goals and commit to the shared objectives of your employer. In return, you have a right to expect fair treatment if you are injured on the job. Instead, after a workplace accident, you may face resistance on behalf of your employer or the insurance company when you submit a claim. Unfortunately, due to significant reforms to the Workers' Compensation Act, it can be increasingly difficult for injured employees to gain access to proper medical treatment and financial benefits without the help of a skilled lawyer.

Where Workers' Compensation Meets Products Liability

In some cases, a worker's injuries may be the result of a defective product or piece of equipment. This is especially seen in industrial workplaces or construction sites. If your accident was caused by machinery that malfunctioned, or had improper safety features, we may be able to seek financial recovery from the manufacturer's insurance company. These products liability claims are a type of personal injury lawsuit, and can provide additional compensation above and beyond your workers' compensation benefits.
