Dedicated Chicago Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

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.


Types of Workers We Represent

Our workers’ compensation lawyers handle cases involving all types of work-related illnesses and injuries. While most of our cases are resolved out of court, if your employer won’t pay the benefits you are owed, we will not hesitate to take your case to trial. Retaliation against workers who pursue benefits claims is illegal, so you don’t have to worry about adverse treatment when you file your claim. If your employer does retaliate, we can help you enforce your legal rights.

We represent workers in all jobs, occupations, and professions throughout Illinois, and have particular experience working with:

In some industries, there are special laws that provide additional protections for injured workers. For example, the Federal Employee Liability Act allows railroad workers to seek damages from their employers above and beyond the benefits available through workers’ compensation. At Malman Law, we can help you understand your options, and we will develop a thorough case strategy designed to help you obtain maximum compensation for your work-related injuries.


Other Ways to Recover Compensation for Injuries on the Job

In many cases, there are options in addition to workers’ compensation for seeking financial recovery for job-related injuries. For example, if your employer is not subject to workers’ compensation, you may be able to pursue an ordinary claim for personal injury. In addition, if a company or someone other than your employer is to blame, we can help you pursue compensation from the responsible party (or parties) as well. This option is critically important since workers’ compensation typically does not provide coverage for the full scope of your injuries and losses.

Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to seek compensation from:

  • Product manufacturers, distributors, and retailers
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Negligent drivers and their employers
  • Engineering firms, security companies, and project managers
  • Property owners and tenants

If you suffer an injury on the job, you should never assume that (i) no one is responsible, or (ii) you are only entitled to whatever workers’ compensation benefits your employer is willing to pay. When you contact Malman Law, we will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the responsible parties and fight vigorously to ensure that you receive the full compensation for your losses.

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
