Illinois Workers' Compensation Lawyer Serving DuPage County, Cook County, and Across the Area

Most employers in the state of Illinois are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. Under this system, an employee who is injured on the job is entitled to compensation for his/her injuries, as well as compensation for lost wages due to time missed from work. Benefits are available through the employer's insurance policy regardless of fault; and in exchange for being a "no-fault" system, employees are not allowed to take legal action against their employers because of their injuries.

Filing a workers' comp claim can be a complex and confusing process for employees, and insurers often employ delaying tactics which make the process even more difficult. At the Law Office of Vincent C. Machroli, P.C., we understand the frustration employees go through trying to secure the benefits they are entitled to, and we are aggressive advocates on behalf of our clients when negotiating with the big insurers. For over 30 years, we have helped countless clients with workers' compensation claims in DuPage County, Cook County and all counties across the greater Chicago metro area.

We work closely with our clients, putting our extensive experience to work toward a favorable resolution. We are compassionate, responsive and detail-oriented.

Workers' Compensation Claims in Cook County

Benefits may be sought for all types of workplace injuries, including injuries to the hand, shoulder, neck, knee, spine, and other parts of the body, as well as occupational diseases that develop over time. Workplace injuries occur for a number of reasons; some of the most common include:

  • Slips and Falls
  • Overexertion
  • Repetitive Motion
  • Machinery Accidents
  • Being Struck by Objects
  • Motor Vehicle Accident
  • Workplace Violence

Workers' compensation claims are paid to cover medical expenses, two-thirds of your lost wages, and the rehabilitation or training necessary to help you return to your job. Disabilities fall under four general categories:

  • Temporary Partial Disability
  • Permanent Partial Disability
  • Temporary Total Disability
  • Permanent Total Disability

The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the extent of your injuries and which category you fall under. In some cases, such as those involving permanent disability, the insurer for the employer may offer a lump-sum settlement.

Third-Party Workplace Injuries in Illinois

Not all workplace injuries fall within the workers' compensation system. There are instances when the responsible party is someone outside of the company. For example, if the employee is driving the company truck and is struck by another motorist, or if a third-party vendor who is working on site causes the injury. In such cases, a personal injury case may be brought against the third party.

Workers' compensation claims can be tricky to file, and employees often end up being denied through no fault of their own. The Law Office of Vincent C. Machroli, P.C. is here to help provide a voice to those who are rightfully entitled to compensation for their workplace injuries.
