Compensation for Injured Maintenance Workers in Illinois
At Malman Law, we understand that risk of injury is a way of life for many Chicago-area workers.
If you are a maintenance employee at a school, hospital, retail store, residential complex, factory, or any other commercial facility, and you’ve suffered an on-the-job injury due to another party’s carelessness or hazardous conditions, please don’t assume that you’re “stuck with it.”
You have options – and our Chicago workplace injury attorneys will be happy to help you explore them.
According to research published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than four million American workers suffer some kind of job-related injury every year. Many of those are related to routine maintenance work or dangerous property conditions.
Naturally, some injuries are minor and heal quickly. Others are much more serious and can even be debilitating, possibly affecting your ability to do your job and earn a living.
None of this is fair. You go to work so that you can support yourself and your family – not to injure your body for someone else’s gain. They benefited from your labor. They benefited from the risks that you took. In many cases, they are even the ones who created or permitted the hazards that led to your injury in the first place. You shouldn’t be the one to pay the price.
You deserve top-notch legal representation to maximize your chances for comprehensive compensation that represents the full costs of your suffering and losses.
At Malman Law, we stand up for the rights of injured Chicagoans. We’re here to insist that employers, their insurers, and the state Workers’ Compensation Commission treat you fairly. We’re often able to make a big difference in the outcome of our clients’ claims. Let us help you with yours. Contact us today.
The Illinois Workers’ Comp System Isn’t Perfect
While Illinois Workers’ Compensation does cover many injuries, anyone who’s gone through that system before can tell you that it isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be.
Benefits often add up to very small amounts of money – rarely enough to cover the costs you’ve incurred. And all too often, injured Chicagoans’ benefits are denied altogether – even if their claims were valid and lawful.
Don’t let that happen to you. Sit down today with the skilled and compassionate Chicago workplace injury attorneys at Malman Law. We know what you’re entitled to, we know the law, and we know how to make this system work for the people who need it.
Depending on the specific circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to more than you realize – and we may have a number of avenues available to us for getting you the money that you deserve. While no one can guarantee a particular outcome, we feel confident that we can have a meaningful impact on your claim.
We’ve helped many injured maintenance workers in Chicago and beyond. We’d like to do the same for you.
Out-of-Court Settlements vs. Going to Trial
We are proud of the fact that approximately 95 percent of our cases settle out of court. That is an outstanding percentage, and it represents a real value for our clients.
Generally speaking, out-of-court settlements cost substantially less than a full-blown court proceeding. They also require less time and are considerably less stressful for everyone involved. Often, the details of the settlement can be kept private, which preserves a degree of privacy, as well.
When negotiated effectively, it is possible for an out-of-court settlement to give you a handsome financial recovery, while sparing you the expense, stress, and time of going to trial.
But we must emphasize that settlement isn’t always the right choice. If we can’t get the other side to agree to a truly fair settlement for you, we do not hesitate to take cases to trial. Courts tend to be sympathetic to injured workers, and we are prepared to make a strong showing of your rights there.
Ultimately, though, the defendants in these cases know that we are serious about getting our clients the money that they deserve. To that end, we are passionate and aggressive. Our Chicago workplace injury attorneys are skilled negotiators, and we know how to make effective and compelling demands. We’re here to win.
