Chicago, IL Workers’ Compensation Attorneys for Government Employees

The Illinois Workers Compensation Act and the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act provide benefits to government workers who suffer job-related injuries and illnesses. If you are a government employee who has gotten sick or injured on the job, the attorneys at Malman Law will make sure that you receive fair compensation.

As a public servant, you play an important role in our society. Government employees in all occupations and professions help keep our city, our state, and our country running, while providing essential services ranging from fire and rescue to mail delivery.

Unfortunately, government employees are no more immune to job-related illness and injuries than anyone else. In fact, in many government occupations, workers face unique risks not faced by workers in commercial industries. At Malman Law, we are committed to helping injured and sick government employees by making sure that they receive the financial benefits they deserve.

Government Workers We Serve

Our attorneys have decades of experience representing government and private-sector employees in workers’ compensation claims throughout the Chicagoland area. The government employees we serve include, but are not limited to:

  • Fire and rescue workers
  • Maintenance and utility workers
  • Members of the Illinois National Guard
  • Office employees
  • Police and other law enforcement officers
  • Postal workers

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act covers Illinois state employees as well as employees of the City of Chicago and other cities, towns, counties, school districts and municipalities. Benefits available under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act include coverage for medical expenses, missed time from work, and other losses. The Federal Employees’ Compensation Act provides similar benefits for postal workers and federal employees.

However, even though payment of these benefits is mandated by law, many federal, state, and local employees struggle to collect the benefits that they are rightfully owed. At Malman Law, we will fight to secure maximum compensation for your job-related illness or injury.


Common Job-Related Illnesses and Injuries

All types of illnesses and injuries are potentially eligible for compensation under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act and the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act. This includes all job-related illnesses and injuries – not just those suffered while performing your specific duties. For example, if you work in an office at City Hall or the John C. Kluczynski Federal Building and fall down the stairs, your injuries could be covered even though you were not specifically “doing your job” at the time of the accident.

Of course, incidents specifically related to your job duties are covered as well. See some examples of accidents that commonly lead to claims for workers’ compensation.

Some of the most common types of injuries we see in workers’ compensation cases include the following:

  • Broken bones
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Dog bites
  • Electrocution injuries
  • Head injuries (including traumatic brain injuries)
  • Neck and back injuries (including spinal cord injuries)
  • Severe cuts and bruises
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sprains and strains

These are just examples. If you work for the State of Illinois, the City of Chicago, the federal government, or any other government entity and have suffered any type of injury on the job, we want to help make sure you receive rightful compensation.


Was Someone Else Responsible for Your Injury?

Importantly, in many cases, injured workers can file personal injury claims in addition to seeking benefits under the applicable workers’ compensation statute. While workers’ compensation is typically the only option that government workers have to seek compensation from their employers, if someone else is to blame for your injury, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit in addition to seeking workers’ compensation benefits.

These “third-party” claims are common in situations, such as:

  • Accidents caused by defective tools, vehicles, equipment, and machinery
  • Auto accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Slips and falls
  • Violent attacks

When you contact us about your illness or injury, we will explore all possible opportunities to help you secure maximum compensation. While you may need to repay certain workers’ compensation benefits if you obtain a personal injury award, pursuing both options can help ensure that you are able to get the treatment you need and pay your bills as quickly as possible.

2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
