Worker’s Comp Claims

They say that “if you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life.”  Whether or not you love your work, for now you need it to keep the lights on, to keep all stomachs topped-off, and to sock away enough to deal with problems big and small.

When hampered in your ability to make money, small problems soon become big problems.  What you used to do without thinking now takes all day or keeps you awake all night.

Getting hurt on the job is the most infuriating part of it all.  You wake up early every morning to make it to work on time.  You work late when you need to, sometimes putting family activities on hold.  If you are injured on the job, it is important to seek advice from a trusted attorney who can help guide you through the complexities of a workplace injury. It is important to know your rights and options and to get the medical care and treatment you need.

Regardless of who was fault, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation to cover medical care, rehabilitation, disability, and other benefits. Illinois worker’s compensation law is a no fault system and you are entitled to benefits so long as your injury occurred in the course and scope of your employment.

“The Jim Rochford & Associates law firm was extremely helpful in resolving a very difficult and sensitive situation in a federal lawsuit against a school. Tim Cushing served as the lead attorney, and worked closely with Jim Rochford. Attorney Nick Rochford also provided very valuable counsel. On a personal level, they were responsive and easy to communicate with throughout the entire process. They were also patient, always available to answer questions, and provided objective legal advice that I knew I could trust. Their attention to detail and knowledge of laws are unsurpassed. In addition, the firm has highly professional and helpful support staff, including Deb Rochford and Mary Thomas, and a network of specialized experts that they collaborate with to provide comprehensive legal solutions. After working with this law firm, I strongly recommend them to anyone needing an extremely responsive law firm that will work tirelessly to protect their clients’ interests. They are highly respected in the legal community, and I would trust them with any legal situation – personal or business.”

Appreciative Client

“Could not have asked for a better experience! Both the attorneys and staff were extremely professional in the handling of my case. They represented me on my worker’s compensation case that was from a summer job in another state. They helped me get a great settlement and it did not take very long either. I would highly recommend Jim Rochford as an attorney for anyone. One thing that stood out about him was I truly believe he always had my best interest at heart.”

Allie Caruso

“I am somewhat late in writing this but team Rochford went above and beyond my expectations while assisting me with my fathers estate after his passing. We unfortunately had a squatter in his home during covid which we were able to successfully remove with the assistance of Tim Cushing’s letters and the PCPD. They really made us feel like family and at no point did I ever feel they were seeking to take advantage of the situation for profit. I would gladly give 6 stars!”


“I have dealt with this attorney for years and they always take care of me and my family. I highly recommend this company for all injury cases. They go above and beyond. 5 stars.”

Joseph Walters

“Tim Cushing is an incredible family law attorney. He has worked effortlessly for my children. Jim Rochford and his lovely wife, Deb, have been supportive and are as invested in my children as I am. Even the paralegal, Mary, puts her heart and soul into everything. I cannot stress to you how amazing this Law Firm has been to my little family. If you are in need of an attorney, don’t hesitate to give them a call. They specialize in many different aspects of the law and will put you with an attorney who is a great fit!”

Kate Elliott

“I highly recommend! Nick and Jim were amazing attorney to work with. They kept an open line of communication and I was involved with the case the whole time. They were always available to answer any questions or when I needed an update on where we were at in the process.”
