Workers in factories and warehouses face ever-present safety hazards on the job. If you have been injured in a work-related accident or suffer a repetitive stress injury from work activities, you may be qualified for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies often make routine denials of worker injury claims.
At Healy Scanlon Law Firm in Chicago, our attorneys represent union and nonunion factory workers who are injured on the job, including workers at the Chrysler assembly plant in Belvidere and John Deere and Caterpillar plants in Illinois. If you have been injured on the job, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your options.
A serious work injury can affect your ability to work and earn a living. Yet many workers’ compensation insurance carriers are concerned only about managing costs. It often takes a lawyer’s help to receive the medical care, lost wages and other benefits you deserve.
Illinois workers’ compensation is designed to provide benefits for as long as you are unable to work due to a job-related injury or illness. If your workers’ compensation doctor is telling you that you are ready to return to work before you are ready, it’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. If you turn down a part-time duty assignment, the insurance carrier may use that as an excuse to terminate your benefits.
Our workers’ compensation law firm has a track record of helping injured factory workers receive the benefits they deserve. There is never a fee unless we are successful.

Per Governor Pritzker’s recent request that workplaces reduce their workforce and work remote whenever possible, please be advised that our office remains open, but many employees will be working remotely until the end of the month. Mail, voicemail, and emails will be received. We thank you for your patience during this period of time.
