Chicago Attorneys Helping People With Workplace Injuries
If you are injured at the workplace, you may be entitled to collect workers’ compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation benefits will provide for your medical benefits and a portion of your lost wages, although it does not provide for the full measure of your lost wages. Workers’ compensation does not provide benefits for pain and suffering either. If your on-the-job injury was caused by someone other than your employer, such as a subcontractor, vendor or a defective product, you may also have a claim for third-party liability. To help you recover the compensation you deserve, speak with a knowledgeable lawyer.
At the Law Offices of Leonard S. Becker, based in Chicago, we have extensive experience representing injured workers. Call 312-492-7700 to discuss your workplace injury with our attorneys.

Determining Third-Party Liability
Illinois workers’ compensation laws prevent employees from filing lawsuits against employers. However, if a third party, such as a vendor or product manufacturer, is responsible for your work accident, you may seek to hold that individual or entity responsible.
