Firm Overview

Since 1962, the law firm of Krol, Bongiorno & Given, Ltd. has been a leader in the field of workers’ compensation law, protecting the rights of tens of thousands of workers injured on the job. KBG provides our clients with a team of attorneys that are aggressive, experienced, client-focused and trial ready. We have handled well over 30,000 claims for injured workers throughout the state of Illinois and have consistently generated some of the largest settlements and awards at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (“IWCC”).

KBG handles claims for both union and non-union injured workers. All claims are handled on a contingency basis, meaning there are $0 in up-front costs to our clients. We do not get paid until your claim is favorably resolved.

We know this is a very trying time in your life and we are sensitive to the stresses you have as a result of your injury. We work hard to develop a professional and personal relationship with our clients in order to provide them with outstanding service and representation. This attorney-client relationship is crucial to helping our clients overcome the challenges they have during the pendency of the claim.

The KBG law firm DOES NOT ADVERTISE. We obtain all of our clients through referrals from former clients and word of mouth.

While working with KBG, you will be working with a licensed attorney. You will have minimal interaction with paralegals and other support staff. We work hard to establish a personal relationship with all of our clients. We will take your phone calls, even after you have signed with our law firm.

If you are unhappy with your current lawyer, call our office for a free second opinion. We have heard too many times that attorneys are not returning the phone calls of their clients. We will not avoid your phone call. Our firm may be able to take over the handling of your claim for no additional cost to you.

While we concentrate on handling workers’ compensation claims, we also assist our clients in all injury related matters including, but not limited to, personal injury, car accidents, truck accidents, wrongful death, products liability, and medical malpractice. Our firm also works with attorneys handling employment and social security claims.

The law firm worked quickly to ensure I would not be burdened for very long with my case. Every time I called I was given more information on my case. They are efficient and do not linger with any paperwork. I was truly amazed at the results and the short time it took. I’m beyond happy with the result of my case. I would recommend their services to anyone without hesitation.
