Claimed Lawyer ProfileLII GoldBlawgsearchSocial Media

Christopher Johnson has spent a significant part of his career obtaining compensation for the harms and losses suffered by workers on the job. He has litigated across the State of Illinois against various employers such as: AT&T; Chicago Transit Authority; City of Chicago; Cook County; State of Illinois; Johnson Controls; Tyson Foods; Lowe’s; Home Depot; and Walmart. He has also represented nurses who were hurt on the job. While many of the injury cases that he has litigated have involved torn ligaments and tendons in the shoulders and knees, he also has years of experience handling cases involving disc injuries to the low back and neck. On rarer occasions, he has worked on cases involving irreparable eye and brain injuries. However, the majority of Mr. Johnson’s career has focused on obtaining compensation for the harms and losses that result as a consequence of basic safety rule violations outside of the work place. He has trial and appellate experience in personal injury cases across Illinois, many of which have involved: tractor-trailer crashes; car wrecks; motor vehicle to bicycle collisions; Uber drivers; Rasier drivers; Lyft drivers; motor vehicle to pedestrian collisions; safety rule violations on construction sites; wrongful death; and negligent maintenance by businesses.

He is admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of Illinois and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He obtained his J.D. with Honors at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Illinois Institute of Technology and his B.A. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Mr. Johnson is a member of the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois State Bar Association, Illinois Trial Lawyer’s Association, and Workers’ Compensation Law Association. Mr. Johnson is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum for personal injury lawyers and Distinguished Justice Advocates - fewer than 1% of attorneys in the United States are members of these organizations.
