Lost your Job because of a Work Injury?

If you have permanent injuries as a result of your work injury and you are no longer able to perform your former job, see an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation attorney right away.

Illinois law provides that you are entitled to payment for two-thirds of the difference between your old and new jobs.

This means you will have to look for a job so that you are able to prove what the wage rate is of the new job.

You must be careful because the insurance company will often look for a reason to argue that you are not being diligent in your job search and attempt to stop payments while you are performing your job search.

Make sure that you have an attorney to advise and protect you.
