Third-Party Workplace Accident Lawyers in Cook County

Elmhurst Third-Party Work Injury Lawsuit Lawyers

Lawyers in Bensenville for Victims Injured at Work by Another Party's Negligence

In any given year, over 100,000 Illinois workers suffer injuries while performing their jobs, including workers in both the private sector and government employees. Over one-third of these injuries result in missed time at work for the victim. Many other victims are restricted in their duties or transferred to new positions due to their injuries.

At Kaiser Hafezi Law, our experienced attorneys realize the devastating effects that a workplace injury can have on your life. Your company is required by law to maintain workers' compensation insurance coverage, but the benefits offered under the state's workers' comp program are often not enough to cover the full extent of your injuries. The good news is that there may be other avenues through which you obtain compensation. If you were injured as a result of negligence by a party other than your employer, you could potentially file a third-party injury claim in addition to your workers' comp claim. A third-party claim could also be useful for injuries that are not eligible for workers' compensation benefits.

Tenacious Representation for Workplace Injury Victims in Wood Dale and Addison

According to Illinois law, you are prohibited from filing a lawsuit against your company or your coworkers in most work injury cases. There are exceptions for particularly egregious situations, but generally, you cannot sue your employer when you get hurt at work. However, there could be other parties whose negligence caused you to be injured. If, for example, you were injured while working as a subcontractor on a construction site, the supervising general contractor might be held liable for failing to maintain a safe worksite. Likewise, if you spend time on the road for your job, and you are involved in a car accident caused by another driver, you have the right to seek compensation from the at-fault driver. Depending on the circumstances, you could potentially collect damages from more than one negligent party.

The skilled lawyers at our firm have more than 100 years of combined experience in the areas of workers' compensation and personal injury law. We are equipped to help you with both types of claims for injuries that occur at work. Our attorneys will work closely with you in exploring and understanding all of your options for securing the benefits and compensation to which the law says you are entitled.
