We practice in related areas of labor and employment law, but concentrate in representing injured workers before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC). The IWCC is a state agency that regulates and rules on claims for workplace injuries and occupational diseases. Because of Elfenbaum Evers & Zielinska's labor law expertise, we are especially skilled in complex cases where workers’ compensation, union contracts, health insurance, Social Security and pension issues overlap. 


We have represented thousands of injured workers and recovered millions in benefits. Since 2001, we have on average secured over $1 million per month for injured workers in benefits, settlements and awards alone, not counting the free medical care our clients get through our efforts. We can also help you with a number of other legal problems or issues. Call us anytime to discuss:

  • Workers' Compensation: On-the-job injuries

  • Personal Injury: Auto accidents, slips and falls, property owners’ liability, etc.

  • Employment Discrimination: Discrimination based on race, gender, age or disability; sexual harassment; retaliatory discharge (for exercising a legal right such as filing a complaint)

  • Medical Malpractice: Hospital or nursing home injuries; birth injuries; physician and surgical errors; prescription errors; wrongful death cases

  • Product Liability: Injuries due to unsafe machinery, defective consumer products, etc.

  • Social Security: Applications and appeals


No matter what kind of legal question you have, give us a call. If we cannot represent you, we will connect you with the smartest and toughest lawyers in Illinois. You don’t have to fight alone!
