Experience You Can Count On

Founded in 1983, Becker, Schroader & Chapman has a history of helping injured workers and accident victims in Granite City and throughout the Metro East, as well as Central and Southern Illinois.

With a combined 100 years of experience, our lawyers have handled thousands of personal injury and workers' compensation cases. We represent people, not companies, and we protect the rights of individuals against much larger entities.

Give us a call today to discuss your unique challenges and concerns.

How Our Aggressive Approach Can Benefit You

In car accident cases, we aggressively represent clients against trucking companies and other commercial enterprises that may be liable for negligence. We also deal aggressively with insurance companies.

In toxic exposure, railroad and maritime or construction accident cases, we are not afraid to take on major corporations who have committed safety violations, inadequately trained workers, or manufactured faulty products. Our firm's personal injury case successes include an $8.47 million verdict against a trailer coupler company.

In nursing home negligence and medical malpractice cases, we have the skill to take on complex cases and prominent health providers.

Standing Up For You After A Work Injury

As litigators, our lawyers have comprehensive legal knowledge and proven courtroom skills. We also have strategic insight from our backgrounds in some of the same industries as our clients.

Gregory Becker, one of our founding attorneys, previously was a steelworker, construction worker, and firefighter in Granite City. Among his credentials as a lawyer, he is a national expert on defective trailer couplers and a member of the exclusive Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is limited to attorneys who have obtained million- and multimillion-dollar verdicts.

Our entire legal team has experience with workplaces such as manufacturing plants, steel mills, refineries, barges, and correctional facilities.

As part of our mission to stand up for workers, we are an AFL-CIO/UPLS Designated Legal Counsel. We also are part of the Special Emergency Response Team (S.E.R.T.) for the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers Union, a multidisciplinary first response team for catastrophic injury and fatal workplace incidents.

We help employees from all industries and government organizations with workers' compensation cases, and we have a track record of routinely winning disputed cases.

Focused On Results

In all cases, our firm combines a dedication to clients with a commitment to results.

Whatever crisis or challenge you may be facing, you can rely on us for vigorous representation.

We will direct all of our firm's resources toward maximizing your financial recovery, and we will not charge you unless we obtain compensation for you.
