Claimed Lawyer ProfileLII GoldBlawg SearchSocial Media

Chris is a savvy litigator and negotiator who specializes in workers’ compensation law and social security disability law. Over the course of his career, he has represented thousands of clients from all walks of life: from teachers to truck drivers and from factory workers to nurses, and union members from the UAW, IEA, INA, SEIU, Teamsters, and various building trades. He is a tireless fighter on behalf of his clients and will do whatever it takes to make sure his clients receive their benefits. He has obtained awards for disability benefits and penalties against employers for not paying disability benefits in cases before both the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and the Illinois Appellate Court.

He represents many clients who work in the automotive industry, and has taken on such companies as Ford Motor Company, Mitsubishi Motors, Tower Automotive, and ZF Lemforder. An expert on cases involving injury due to repetitive trauma, he frequently pursues cases for carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff tears, and cubital tunnel syndrome at the elbow from repetitive motion.

Chris also has successfully proven cases of total disability from conditions such as CRPS or RSD, failed back syndrome, spinal fusion and the amputation of a limb.

Over the years, Chris has had many significant decisions, including Judith Randle v. Illinois Industrial Commission, 05 IWCC 0530, which affirmed that an injured worker does not have to prove that her carpal tunnel syndrome was not caused by other medical conditions; Johnsy Anderson v. Dr. Kim Livtezy 16 IWCC 2090, which affirmed that a disabled worker does not have to perform an alternative job where the worker is certified as totally disabled, and Pamela Goff v. State of Illinois, 10 IWCC 12110I, which affirmed that tripping over a rug in the workplace qualifies as a work-related injury.
