Illinois Workers’ Compensation law allows you to get your work injury settlement after you have completed your medical treatment.
Most Illinois work injuries will result in permanent damage and this means you are entitled to recover money from the insurance company.
Permanent damage means things such as fractures, surgical repairs, hernias, severe strains, permanent restrictions.
Once you have been released from the doctor the insurance company should contact you and offer you money for your injury.
If they do not make an offer see an Illinois Work Comp Attorney right away.
Some insurance companies will hope you do not know the law and walk away without getting any money.
Some insurance companies will give you a low offer and hope you will take it to save themselves money.
You should contact an Illinois Workers’ Compensation lawyer to discuss your offer. There is no fee unless the attorney can recover money for you.
