About Horwitz Horwitz & Associates
Clifford Horwitz has won every case he’s taken to trial in the past 20 years, with over 25% of his victories representing record-setting jury verdicts. Mitchell Horwitz leads the workers' compensation team and was recently named one of the Top 10 Workers' Compensation Lawyers in Illinois in a survey of his peers conducted by Leading Lawyers. Worker's compensation attorneys, like Marc Perper and Mark Weissburg are vital components to the success we have established as Illinois and Chicago workers' compensation attorneys.
Hundreds, if not thousands, of working men and women in Illinois will benefit from Marc Perper’s work. Marc convinced the Illinois Supreme Court to reverse an unfavorable appellate court decision in 2010. The Supreme Court agreed with Marc that when an employer fires an individual while the person is on temporary light duty, regardless of whether the firing is for “cause” – the employer must reinstate weekly disability benefits. Injured workers are obviously extremely vulnerable when they lose weekly disability benefits because their daily existence depends upon it. The decision of the Supreme Court of Illinois will help thousands of these injured workers.
Mark Weissburg authored the book, “How to Win a Workers’ Compensation Claim in Illinois.” The book provides useful insight into the secrets that insurance adjusters do not want you knowing, the three basic rights you have under the Workers’ Compensation Act, amendments to the Workers’ Compensation Act, red flags that will alert you to problems up ahead, and many more useful tips. If you would like a copy of Mark’s book for free, call our Chicago office at (312) 372-8822 or our Toll-Free line at 1-(800) 594-7433.
