We Defend Workers After Unsafe Equipment/Machine Failure Accidents

People who work with machines and heavy equipment are at risk of serious injury on a daily basis. Employers have a responsibility to provide their employees with safe, properly maintained equipment. Manufacturers are responsible for creating machines and tools that are safe and free of defects.

When an accident happens, someone is at fault. At Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., we identify negligent parties and aggressively pursue compensation for injury victims and their families.

Since 1955, we have been dedicated to helping injured workers and other injured people in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Our lawyers can handle every aspect of your injury, including workers’ compensation, Social Security Disability and third-party claims, such as a personal injury or product liability claim, and any other matter related to your injury.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
