Illinois Workers’ Compensation and Third-Party Claims
Illinois workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. You do not have to prove your employer acted negligently to obtain benefits. The drawback of the system is that it limits what types of compensation you can get. This is another area where the size of our firm and the experience of our attorneys can help you.
Third-party claims can allow an injured worker to seek greater compensation where his or her injuries were caused by a negligent third party. At Goldberg Weisman Cairo, our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases where workers’ compensation and third-party claims overlap. We can help you get all the compensation you deserve, whether through a workers’ compensation claim, a personal injury lawsuit or a combination of the two. We can manage every aspect of your case efficiently to give you maximum compensation.

That’s important because Illinois workers’ compensation laws are complex.
