DuPage County Shipping and Trucking Injury Lawyers

Lombard Illinois Workers' Compensation Attorneys For Trucking Industry Workers

Workers in the shipping and trucking industry are exposed to numerous hazards. In addition to the tens of thousands of miles driven each year, truckers also spend countless hours loading and unloading heavy cargo. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while on the job, you may be eligible for workers' compensation. Filing a claim can be complicated, however, and it is always best to speak with an experienced workers compensation attorney so you understand your options.

For over 35 years, Mevorah Law Offices LLC has represented shipping and trucking workers for workers' compensation injury claims in Chicago and throughout Illinois. Our attorneys have extensive experience with all types of workers' compensation cases. We are skilled litigators inside the courtroom and strong negotiators outside of court, and we put this experience to work to give our clients the comprehensive legal representation they deserve.

We are highly acclaimed not only for our experience and skilled, but also for our client-centered approach. Our attorneys are honest, straightforward, compassionate and down to earth. We understand the physical, emotional and financial toll shipping and trucking injuries can have on you and your family, and we work hard to make the legal process as smooth and seamless as possible. We offer free consultations at five area locations, extended evening and weekend hours for your convenience, and we provide regular updates on the progress of your case.

Common Injuries

Truckers often suffer injuries from motor vehicle accidents, working with dangerous equipment, being struck by a falling object, or loading and unloading cargo. Some of the most common injuries include:

Some shipping worker injuries are the result of a one-time accident, while others are repetitive stress injuries caused by repeatedly lifting heavy cargo into trucks and onto loading docks. Ongoing exposure to toxic substances at regular pick up and drop off points can also lead to occupational diseases.

Recovering compensation for shipping and trucking worker injuries is not always easy. Some truckers are independent contractors and are not directly employed by those who hire them. In addition, injuries such as those resulting from truck accidents are often the fault of someone other than your employer. In such cases, you may be able to file a third party injury claim to recover damages. Social Security Disability may also be available for truckers who have worked the required number of quarters to qualify. If your injury was the result of an accident that occurred while working out of state, you may still be able to file for workers' compensation in Illinois. In many cases, this is the best course of action because Illinois has very favorable workers' compensation laws.

At Mevorah Law Offices LLC, we understand how to successfully navigating the complexities of workers' compensation claims, particularly those involving out of state trucking injuries. We also have in-depth experience with personal injury actions against third parties, as well as Social Security Disability claims. We know that each individual circumstance is unique, and we work closely with our clients to thoroughly examine your specific case and determine the best legal avenue to recover full compensation for your injuries.
