Chicago Workers’ Comp Lawyers Fighting for Compensation for Injured Engineers

Engineers are among the most talented, highly educated, and in-demand professionals in the United States. They represent a level of skill and knowledge that is hard to come by, and they ought to be treated with the respect they deserve.

Part of that respect entails keeping them safe as they do their jobs. Unfortunately, engineers face a number of occupational hazards – in the office, in the field, traveling between the two, and even while conducting research.

When engineers suffer injury or hardship related to their jobs, they’re generally able to claim compensation for those injuries. That claims process is handled by the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission, a state system designed to reduce litigation and make it easier for employees to get the help that they need.

Unfortunately, Workers’ Comp is anything but easy. The claims are complicated. The paperwork is confusing. Talking to a real person and resolving issues (whether in person or over the phone) can seem impossible. Employers and their insurance companies are of little help.

Even for bright and well-educated working professionals, the Workers’ Comp process can become so unwieldy and intimidating that victims are inclined to give up, or settle for less than they deserve. Some even have legitimate claims that are unfairly denied.

At Malman Law, we are dedicated to the idea that employees should be respected and treated fairly in the face of an unexpected injury.

Our experienced Chicago Workers’ Comp lawyers are here to put victims in the best possible position for a full and fair financial recovery.

If you’re an engineer who’s been injured on the job in Illinois, Malman Law can help. Our mission is to maximize your compensation and get you on the road to recovery. Contact our office today.
