We Can Help You Process Your Worker’s Compensation Claim While You Pursue a Third-Party Claim
We know that if you have been injured, you need access to quality medical treatment right now and cannot wait for a settlement offer or judgment while handling your physical recovery. This is why we will help you file your worker’s compensation claim in the meantime so that you can receive the medical care and lost wages you are guaranteed by the state while you pursue further legal action against a negligent contractor or employer.
It does not matter if you live out of state, as we have represented clients throughout the Midwest and the nation. Our Chicago workplace injury lawyers have successfully recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, who have lived both in and out of Illinois.

Types of Cases We Can Handle
Our team of lawyers has experienced working with the following types of claims.

- Worker’s compensation claims for workers who live abroad who have traveled to the United States for employment. We have been able to represent these clients with very little need for them to continue traveling to and from their homes during the legal process.
- Claims for steam fitters, plumbers, electricians, carpenters, construction cleanup workers and machine operators.
