In Illinois once you have a work injury you are entitled to 3 rights.
The insurance company should pay your work injury medical bills.
It should pay you for time off work.
Finally, you should be paid a settlement when you are released from the Doctor.
Some insurance companies will “forget” to tell you about the settlement.
It saves them a lot of money if the injured worker does not pursue the settlement.
Do not let that happen to you.
Make sure to contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to get the settlement you are entitled to.
