COVID really hit the Illinois Work Comp Commission hard. They did not do much for many months.
Hearings restarted recently. February was really the first month trials started again.
Trials are now available but on a limited basis. The Arbitrators can only scheduled a limited number of trials for a couple of days each month.
Settlements can still be processed and approved. This is the fastest way to be paid your money.
A trial may take many months to be scheduled and held.
Insurance companies are taking advantage of this delay.
Make sure to get an Illinois Work Comp Attorney to help you fight the insurance company and get your settlement started. Illinois Work Injury lawyers are not paid until you get your money.
