Let our experience work for you.

Orzoff Law Offices was founded in 1966 with the goal of protecting the legal rights of injured people and maximizing their financial recovery. Our workers’ compensation lawyers have nearly 43 years of experience helping truckers, package and delivery drivers, and dock workers. Let us put that experience to work for you.

Driving a long-haul truck or a local delivery route has serious health and safety risks. Car and truck accidents are only the beginning. Other common injuries include:

  • Shoulder, knee, and back injuries due to handling, and lifting and twisting with heavy freight
    • Torn rotator cuffs of the shoulder
    • herniated lumbar and cervical discs
    • torn meniscus and ligaments of the knee
    • PCL, ACL, and MCL knee injuries
  • Injuries to the knee and broken bones due to slip and falls on slippery loading docks
  • Hip injuries leading to replacements
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome of the hand caused by repeated use of hand-held computers
  • Head injuries due to being struck by falling parcels

All of these, including motor vehicle accidents occurring on the job, are covered by workers’ compensation. Workers’ comp is a program that is intended to help you when you are injured and facing expensive doctor and hospital bills, rehabilitation, long-term care, lost wages, permanent work restrictions or partial permanent disability. Contact our Northbrook or Chicago law office if you have been injured driving, loading or unloading, or just doing your job.

We also help people with other types of personal injuries, including those injured from auto accidents, and the families of victims of wrongful death.

At Orzoff Law Offices, we offer a free consultation with a lawyer to discuss your options. We will advise you as to all of your legal rights and options. We have two convenient locations in downtown Chicago and Northbrook, both of which are near public transportation, and Spanish and Polish language legal services are available. Contact a work injury lawyer if you need help, and let our experience work for you.
