Workers Compensation Lawyer Chicago - We Can Help You Fight for the Settlement You Deserve
If you or a loved one is hurt on the job in Illinois, you have rights. You must be compensated for your injuries. Laws passed by the state require that your employer, or your employer's insurance company, pay you, or your family, for injuries or death that may occur while you are working. You may be entitled to the following:
- Weekly benefits while you are temporarily totally disabled and unable to work.
- Payment of your medical expenses.
- Weekly payments or a lump sum payment for partial or total disability resulting from a work related injury or wrongful death.
Time is crucial when it comes to workers compensation cases (also informally known as workman's comp cases). Often, you have a limited amount of time to file a claim to obtain compensation. This time limit is known as the statute of limitations.

Chicago is one of the world’s most important business centers. The city has a diverse workforce and large labor pool, and it’s not unusual for someone to get injured at work. Whether a workplace accident happens at O’Hare International Airport, at a construction site or at a retail store, the injured worker has a right to pursue compensation. The Illinois workers compensation act provides benefits to injured workers, regardless of fault. If you’re injured, your employer’s insurance company will pay benefits. But these cases can become complicated. The insurance company may try to pay you less than you deserve. Workers comp cases in Chicago demand an experienced, aggressive attorney who understands city’s legal system and how to get results.
