Workers often assume that their employers are on their side. They think that they can count on their employer’s help following a workplace injury. They think that they will have no problem getting workers’ compensation if needed.Then they actually get hurt on the job and learn the truth. The workers’ compensation claim is met with layers of red tape, documentation requirements, delays, underpayment, payment being cut short and even total denial of the claim.If you are in this situation, you may wonder who is on your side. We are. At Budin Law Offices in Chicago, we will stand up to your employer and the workers’ compensation insurance company to get you the help you need. Since our founding in 1990, we have helped hundreds of workers get medical and wage benefits.

Do You Have A Personal Injury Claim, Too?
An on-the-job injury may entitle the victim to not only workers’ compensation, but also to additional money through a personal injury claim. This is true in cases where the injury at work was caused by a negligent third party other than the employer.
For example, in construction accident claims, the injury may have been the result of a third party such as the general contractor, a subcontractor working for a different company or the manufacturer of a piece of defective equipment.
As a law firm that handles both workers’ compensation and personal injury cases, we are able to identify and pursue the appropriate claims to maximize your compensation.
