Chicago Workers’ Compensation Attorneys • Cook County Workplace Injury Lawyers
At the law offices of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd., our Workers’ Compensation lawyers are dedicated to protecting the rights of people who suffer injuries at work.
The Workers’ Compensation Statute protects every employee in the State of Illinois. (Workers’ Compensation was once referred to as “workman’s Compensation.”) The statute provides for benefits that compensate injured employees for lost time from work, medical bills incurred, and any permanent disability.
There are substantial monetary differences between a claim that is handled with mere adequacy and one handled with the depth of experience and knowledge possessed by the attorneys of Anesi Ozmon. We strive to maximize weekly benefits paid for lost time and to ensure that permanent disability is fully evaluated which can add substantially to an eventual settlement or award.
We have a department of lawyers and a support team equipped to handle any type of work-related injury and our attorneys handle the most complex cases such as catastrophic injuries, heart attack claims, stress-related claims, repetitive trauma, carpal tunnel claims, and reflex sympathetic dystrophy injuries.
We work with vocational rehabilitation experts to provide a smooth transition into retraining, continued education, and new job placement for workers unable to return to their previous occupation. We obtain wage-differential compensation for our clients who return to the work force but are forced to earn a lower wage than they were earning in their previous employment or trade. We work with architects and builders to provide for the redesign or rebuilding of our clients’ homes who suffer injuries necessitating handicap-accessibility and ongoing rehabilitation services.
We treat our clients with dignity and respect. Our attorneys are persistent, aggressive, and passionate in ensuring that our clients receive the best representation and obtain the optimal recovery and compensation for their injuries.
