What is A Workers’ Compensation Settlement?

In Illinois if you are injured on the job then you are entitled to a settlement.

The settlement is the value of your case for permanent damage you have suffered as a result of your injuries.

It is not payment for pain and suffering; that is not factored into a Work Comp settlement in Illinois.

It is payment for such things as back or neck surgery, strained muscles, carpal tunnel syndrome, broken bones, scars, sprained ankles, knees, surgeries of all kinds, amputations, or concussions.

Many insurance companies will not tell injured workers about their settlement or refuse to answer any questions about how to get the money.

Make sure to contact a Work Injury attorney if do not hear anything about your settlement.

Do not let a Workers’ Compensation insurance company cheat you out of your settlement.
