Compensation Lawyers

Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

In Illinois, most employers are required to either obtain insurance or self-insure for workers’ compensation benefit for their employees. If you suffer an injury on the job, with only certain limited exceptions, you are entitled to benefits from your employer. Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” system, which means that you do not need to prove that your employer is to blame in order to be entitled to compensation.

Unfortunately, this isn’t quite as good as it sounds. You see, employers and their insurance companies do not like to pay workers’ compensation claims, and they will fight endlessly to avoid paying claims or to pay as little as possible. There are also strict guidelines around reporting your claim and which doctors you can see and still be eligible for compensation. As a result, employees who attempt to obtain workers’ compensation on their own often end up filing unsuccessful claims.

Experienced Representation for Workers’ Compensation Claims in Illinois

At Malman Law, we have decades of experience helping injured workers successfully file for workers’ compensation. We pursue the maximum benefits available, and we use all available avenues and resources to fight for the compensation our clients deserve. The law entitles you to workers’ compensation. Our attorneys are here to make sure that you get the full benefits to which you are entitled.

We represent clients who have suffered all types of work-related injuries. There are many common misconceptions out there, like:

  • You can only obtain benefits if your job is physically strenuous, or
  • You are only entitled to compensation if your injuries are specifically related to your job duties.

But, the reality is that as long as your employer qualifies (and the vast majority of employers do), if you suffer an injury or illness at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation.
