Workers' Compensation Defense
and Lien Recovery
Litigation and defense of public and
private employers

IFMK attorneys are licensed in seven Midwest states and have represented employers and insurance companies in Workers’ Compensation cases since 1990.  We not only help our clients find ways to resolve Workers' Compensation matters without a hearing, we also advise them on whether to bring a case before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission (WCC) and similar governing bodies in Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Missouri, Iowa, and Minnesota.

IFMK’s Worker's Compensation Defense practice offers experience, knowledge and understanding of relevant state Worker's Compensation laws.  Whether a claim involves a parking lot fall, a repetitive trauma such as carpal tunnel syndrome, or a stress-related heart attack, we work with our clients to prepare against non-compensable or fraudulent claims.


We routinely advise our clients as to any potential third-party subrogation recovery and aggressively seek full recovery of any applicable liens. We also represent the interests of our clients as Intervenors to ensure protection of our clients’ lien rights in any third-party claim.
