Working Hard For Chicago’s Injured Workers

Whether you work at one of Chicago's construction projects, manufacturing plants, warehouses, retail stores, medical facilities or offices, you have the right to quality medical care if you are hurt on the job. If you are unable to work because of your injury, you have the right to disability income.

Since 1986, the lawyers at Chadwick & Lakerdas in Hyde Park on Chicago's South Side have fought for injured workers. We are here to help you get the benefits you deserve from workers' compensation.

Pursuing The Coverage You Deserve

Illinois law requires employers to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. In most cases, your employer's insurance should cover you following an accident on the job, including:

  • Payment for all your medical treatments
  • Wages lost during your recovery
  • Compensation for disfiguring injuries or permanent loss
  • Assistance with vocational retraining
  • Wage differential if you are unable to return to your former job and pay
  • Disability benefits if you are partially or totally disabled
  • Death benefits if you lose a family member in a work accident

While the law provides these benefits, it is not always easy to claim them. Your employer or the insurance company may deny that your injury is work-related. Your workers' comp doctor may minimize your injury or dispute your medical needs. Our attorneys are highly skilled at dealing with insurance companies and others that attempt to withhold the benefits you rightly deserve. We will intervene, negotiate and, if necessary, take the matter to court.
