CHICAGO WORKER’S COMPENSATION ATTORNEY
If you are injured or become ill at your workplace or at a work-related activity, you may be eligible for workers compensation — regardless of whether the injury or illness occurred in connection with your job. You are entitled to workers compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.

- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependents’ recovery for worker’s death
- Lost wages or salary
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Retraining costs
- Waiving workers compensation
Accepting workers compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers compensation claim cannot. Attorney with Gonzalez Law Group, P.C. are skilled at analyzing whether you should waive a workers compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, or if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
