Thompson Brody & Kaplan has decades of experience representing injured workers in Chicago and across Illinois. Our experienced workers’ compensation lawyers combine extensive trial experience with dedicated attention to ensure you get the best recovery for your claim.
Similar to a personal injury case, a workers’ compensation claim occurs if you get injured during work, in the course of your employment or while doing your job. In a workers’ compensation claim, you are guaranteed a recovery under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act.
Thompson Brody & Kaplan’s workers’ compensation practice excels in securing the best possible recoveries for our clients through the Illinois Industrial Commission. We represent employees who have sustained a wide range of work injuries, which include:
- Back injuries
- Chemical and electrical burns
- Occupational exposure
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
Due to our extensive network of clients across many industries, Thompson Brody & Kaplan’s lawyers know that missing work—and possibly losing a paycheck—can be disastrous for individuals and their families. That is why we aggressively pursue claims, even through emergency hearings if necessary. We will also seek fines and penalties against employers who try to skirt these claims and their obligations under the law.
