Employees Deserve A Safe Workplace

Were you or a family member injured at work? You can apply for workers' compensation for all on-the-job injuries. If the injury involved someone other than the employer – for example, the manufacturer of a piece of machinery – you may be entitled to additional damages for the accident that go beyond workers' compensation.

At Wise Morrissey Kaveny LLC, we have taken numerous actions against Illinois workplaces, businesses, construction sites and other responsible parties when an untimely injury or death was caused by negligence, product failure or a similar catastrophic event. You can rely on our experience as negotiators and trial attorneys in personal injury and wrongful death suits. We are prepared to fight for you.

Workplace injuries can happen to anyone in any business setting and the number of workplace injuries can be staggering. A recent study shows that nearly 1 million U.S. workers each year experience an injury that causes them to miss a day or more on the job, and workplace injuries are the sixth leading cause of disability claims. In Illinois alone, the same study says there were 26,500 workplace injuries that required job transfer or restrictions and nearly 111,000 disability claims filed.
