Union workers injured on the job are entitled to a settlement.
Illinois law provides that an injured worker may receive medical benefits, off work pay, and settlement pay for the injury.
Some insurance companies will “forget” to pay the injured worker the settlement.
This saves the insurance companies thousands of dollars over time.
The settlement in Illinois is based on the nature and extent of the injury.
There is no payment for pain and suffering for Illinois Workers’ Compensation claims. However, the settlement is based on whether surgery is involved, the specific body part injured, and what limitations result.
