Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

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, even though it 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, Rodin, Novak & Kohen Ltd.. We strive to maximize weekly benefits paid for lost time and to ensure 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. 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 occupations. We obtain wage-differential compensation for our clients who return to the workforce 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.

“I would just like to say to everyone at the firm, this is about Jeff Alter, I know that you all there have large and much more profitable cases than mine, the people that Jeff and his secretary had to deal with are simply scandals and that is being polite, but Jeff and his wonderful secretary fought for me and my family, I was off work over this for over a year. 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].”
