Work Liability

Pursuing All Your Claims From a Workplace Accident

If you were injured on the job, your employer is obligated to provide medical care, lost wages and other benefits. Beyond the employer’s liability, there could be additional claims against third parties if they contributed to your injuries.

At Kelly & King, P.C., we work to ensure that clients receive full workers’ compensation benefits. We also investigate possible third-party actions for compensation above and beyond workers’ comp.

Our law firm represents injured workers in Cook County and DuPage County and Cook County, Illinois. Contact us today to arrange a free consultation.

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Workers’ compensation law is complex and the claim process can be adversarial. Employers and insurance carriers may challenge the claim, deny certain benefits or pressure you to return to work too soon. They have attorneys defending their position, and you should have an experienced lawyer to advocate for you.

Our attorneys have specific experience representing employees before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. Our firm also has defended business clients, so we understand work injury cases from the other side. We can knowledgeably handle all types of workplace accident and work-related injury claims:

  • Construction accidents
  • Machinery and equipment accidents
  • Falling accidents
  • Back injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Vehicle accidents on duty

Work Injury Lawyers

Many workers do not realize the different types of benefits available to them such as their right to compensation for temporary disability, loss of use or permanent disability. We educate clients about their rights and assist with problems that arise such as authorization to see a medical specialist.

We also explore third-party lawsuits for damages beyond workers’ compensation. Although employers have immunity from workplace injury lawsuits, you may be able to sue a manufacturer, a subcontractor or a property owner for negligence that caused or contributed to serious injury.

Kelly & King, P.C., levels the playing field for injured workers. We invite you to contact us at the beginning of your case to protect your rights and secure all entitled benefits. Call 312-553-5290 or 800-331-6995, or e-mail us today.
