High wage earners must make sure that they are paid the correct amount if they are injured on the job and suffer a permanent wage loss.
This includes union workers, professionals, and people paid a high hourly wage.
If you suffer permanent wage loss as a result of your work injuries, then Illinois law has several protections available to you.
Permanent wage reduction may happen because of physical or mental restrictions that cause you to lose your job or force a job change with lower earnings.
Do not settle your work comp case until you explore whether you may have a high wage loss case.
