Work Injuries & Compensation

Chicago Work Injury Attorney

When an injury at work results in the inability to function, or requires medical care, it is necessary to contact a Chicago personal injury lawyer from Steven J. Morton & Associates Ltd. to sort out the situation and seek out all forms of compensation you may be due. In many cases, injured workers discover that it can be difficult to get the medical care and time needed to fully recover from a work injury, and the claims process can be difficult and frustrating. Although the employee is protected and can seek workers' compensation benefits, they can soon discover that certain claims are denied, contested or other problems arise. It is important to the injured and their families that every aspect of the case is fully evaluated and the case presented with all possible damages fully identified and documented.

Work Injury Lawyer in Chicago

Our legal team has the experience and proven trial experience that is frequently necessary when a claim is denied or disputed. It is advised that you contact us at once if injured on the job to assist in avoiding the complications that can arise when dealing with government programs.  Failing to provide the necessary documentation can lead to losing certain potential benefits. Construction site accidents often result in very serious injuries and the victim and their families should have skilled legal counsel to address the matter of compensation.

In other cases, the work injury was contributed to by a third party, such as an equipment manufacturer, a subcontractor or other party that could have liability. We will carefully evaluate your circumstances in order to determine how to access any possible compensation you could be due under law. We strongly advise that you contact us as soon as possible after the accident so that we can carefully manage every aspect of your case and help you to avoid problems in the future. We stand firm on behalf of our clients and will aggressively pursue all the compensation for damages that can be sought, based on the degree of injury and circumstances surrounding the case.
