Historically, Chicago Unions are a powerful entity with established political roots. Nevertheless, union members who have been injured on the job still have strong opponents to contend with. At Malman Law, our worker’s comp lawyers understand that when injury or illness strikes a union worker, the entire family pays the price. If you have suffered an injury that has ended your career, rendered you partially or completely disabled, or has made it temporarily impossible for you to work, we will be your advocates. We will aggressively pursue the repayment you are entitled to, so you can continue to provide for your family long after you have recovered.
Under The Illinois Worker’s Compensation Act, it is illegal to fire, refuse to rehire, or lay off any worker in retaliation for filing a worker’s compensation claim. If this has happened to you, you may be eligible for a large settlement. State law limits the amount of worker’s compensation benefits you can receive, but there is no limit to the amount you can be awarded in a “retaliatory discharge” lawsuit.
