Any work-related injury that will keep you off the job for a substantial period can create severe stress and worry. Most people who must file workers' compensation claims have never navigated this complex process before, and wrongful claim denials and other problems that stop or delay work comp benefit checks are unfortunately common.

Chicago workers' compensation attorney Joshua N. Karmel has decades of experience guiding injured employees through the necessary steps and taking action when problems arise. Not only has he succeeded in obtaining numerous lump sum disability benefit settlements in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars for our clients, he is a sought-after speaker to union groups on relevant issues and strategies.
Claim Assistance · Hearings, Lawsuits And Appeals · Retaliatory Discharge Cases
At our law firm, an experienced lawyer — not an "intake coordinator" or assistant — will thoroughly review and prioritize your case. Our knowledge and capabilities extend across the spectrum of:
- Providing informed counsel and managing Illinois workers' compensation claims from the initial filing through every phase of the process — including temporary total disability benefits claims
- Ensuring clients receive all the benefits they are entitled to for lost wages, medical treatment and vocational retraining if needed
- Asserting clients' rights in arbitration before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, at trial and on appeal when insurers or employers contest and deny their claims
Another key benefit of working with our law firm is our track record in retaliatory discharge claims and other areas of employment law. Should your employer lay you off while you are disabled from work or violate other laws, you will have a proven legal team on your side.
