Understand the Value of Your Work Comp Settlement

There are two ways to make a mistake in settling your Workers’ Compensation case.

If you take an offer that is unfair, then you will end up with less than full value of your case.

Obviously this results in more money in the insurance company pockets and less money in your pockets.

You must also make sure that your medical bills are paid. If you do not do this, then you will end up paying for the bills yourself.

The other extreme is holding out for some unreasonable expectation of  a large settlement.

This is damaging also because it prolongs the process and you are upset in the end.

I have seen people who have rejected a reasonable settlement and gone to court only to be denied any award or awarded something much less than offered.

To protect against these two mistakes be sure to discuss your work injury case with an experienced Illinois Work Injury lawyer.

Some people are afraid they cannot afford a lawyer.

Fortunately in Illinois a work comp lawyer may only charge a 20 percent fee at the time your settlement is paid.
