        AMAZING! I highly recommend this group. We had quite an unusual case, this group was our only glimmer of hope when our options were limited and no one would accept a complicated case. We worked closely with Colin O’Malley and his team. Words cannot do justice to how wonderful they are; highly competent, professional, very responsive, thorough and friendly. Colin went above and beyond to make himself available and to answer all our questions and concerns. If you need an excellent proficient injury lawyer that would fight for you, look no further!

        I had the pleasure of working with attorney Tom Grace on my deceased father’s personal injury case.Tom was very prompt in all of his communications, he never left us guessing what was going on or where we were in the process, he offered up his honest opinion when it was decision making time and lastly he ensured this case wasn’t dragged out.I would highly appreciate his customer service and would absolutely recommend Tom Grace and the Chute, O’Malley, Knobloch & Turcy team.

        Tom Grace is an amazing attorney. I highly recommend him, he was very professional, caring, and very detailed when explaining the status of my case. I was very pleased with my settlement especially during a time like this with this cover-19 going on. He managed to get things done in a timely manner and always kept me in the wraps with my case. Thank You so very much! I really appreciated it. If anyone needs a lawyer, Tom Grace is the guy to go to. Very good job!

        Mike took care of my case and I’m thankful for all of the help, time, and effort he put forth for me. Any time I had questions, Mike was always there to answer and then answer them again if I needed further clarification. Nobody really wants to be put in this position and dealing with a process like mine, but if you absolutely have to, go with him.

        Question:

        Can I Sue my Employer or Coworker for Causing my Injury or Illness?

        Answer:

        We often get called from clients, potential clients, who want to talk about what happened at work. It often surrounds a case where they feel that there were unsafe conditions that caused their injury. They feel like their employer is responsible not just for paying Workers’ Comp benefits. They want to know is there anything we can do.

        Unfortunately for us, or fortunately depending on how you look at it, one of the trade-offs that the Workers’ Compensation Act and statute made over 100 years ago was to remove liability and make it a no-fault statute. What we also did at the same time was made workers’ comp the exclusive remedy for any injuries that occur on the job site. Your employer, your co-worker who’s considered an agent, they have no liability for a work-related injury.

        There are a few extreme exceptions. Those include when an employer or a co-worker is guilty of an intentional tort against you. One case that we represented involved a young lady who was actually raped by her employer. That is such egregious conduct that it removes it from the protections of the Workers’ Compensation Act and we were able to proceed on that claim notwithstanding the other provisions.
