Attorney Robert Smoler started his legal practice in 1983 by assisting people who had been injured in car accidents. A few years later, he realized he could combine his interests in both medicine and trial work to handle workers’ compensation claims for people who have been injured on the job. Both his areas of practice share a theme of helping injured people recover. Because of his concentration on injury and accident claims, he is knowledgeable about the medical aspects of injuries. Robert Smoler has developed a network of doctors and other medical professionals who can testify regarding the extent and effect of injuries sustained in car accidents and workplace accidents.
Injury lawyer Robert Smoler also understands how important it is for clients to make as full a recovery as possible so that they can continue to do the things they enjoy. Mr. Smoler is an avid runner, rock climber, and mountain climber who himself has recovered from numerous sports-related and other injuries. In 1996, he began doing triathlons and started participating in Adventure Races in 2000 and Urban Challenge races in 2002. His team placed 9th in Chicago and 4th in Dallas that year and he qualified for the 2002 championships in Las Vegas. He has occasionally been injured during these races and as a result, personally knows how important it is to get better.
One of Robert Smoler’s cases — American Airlines vs. The Industrial Commission, et.al. (Anne Hennessy, appellant) — led to a change in Illinois workers compensation law. In that successful case, Smoler argued that an American Airlines luggage handler who was injured on the job should be entitled to penalties and attorney fees based on her employer’s “unreasonable and vexatious” delay in paying more than $105,000 in medical expenses.
