Helping Injured People For 55 years. Let Our Experience Work For You.

In 1966, Stewart Orzoff founded Orzoff Law Offices with the goal of protecting the legal rights of injured people throughout Chicago and its suburbs and maximizing their financial recovery. Now, with two offices, in the downtown loop and in Northbrook, Stewart and his sons continue his practice of helping people with personal injury and workers’ compensation claims. Contact our workers’ compensation attorneys for a free consultation and discussion of your options if you have been injured on the job.

Bus and train drivers, taxi drivers, and other transportation workers face a variety of health and safety risks on the job. Hazards such as motor vehicle accidents and slip and falls can lead to:

  • Back injuries, such as:
    • Herniated discs of the lumbar spine and cervical spine
  • Shoulder injuries, including:
    • Tears of the rotator cuff
  • Broken bones in any body part
  • Injuries to the hip resulting in hip replacements
  • Knee injuries:
    • Tears of the meniscus and ligaments of the knee, MCL, ACL, PCL
  • Foot injuries:
    • Plantar fasciitis

Unfortunately, car and truck wrecks aren’t all you have to contend with. Post-traumatic stress disorder associated with traumatic encounters with unruly passengers is not uncommon. Encounters with those committing criminal acts, for example, armed robberies committed on transportation ticket agents, can be a real health risk, leading to expensive medical treatment.

In fact, many government workers face constant contact with the public, which in itself can unfortunately be dangerous. Assault and battery is not unheard of in today’s world. If these things happen to you when you are working, they qualify as work injuries subject to workers’ compensation.

At Orzoff Law Offices, we offer a free consultation to discuss your situation with you. We will advise you as to all of your legal rights and options. We can guide you in seeking qualified medical care, whatever your situation. Contact our Northbrook or downtown Chicago law firm. We will work with you to help obtain compensation for doctor, hospital, or psychologists bills, rehabilitation, long-term care, chiropractic care, lost wages and permanent disability.

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

We have two locations in the Loop and in Northbrook, both of which are convenient to public transportation. We also offer Spanish and Polish language legal services.
