What Increases Your Work Injury Settlement?

In Illinois the value of your settlement is based on your earnings the year before you were injured at work.

The higher your wages, the more your settlement increases.

For instance, someone who earns $12 an hour will have a lower base than the worker who earns $30 per hour. The same injury will be worth more to the higher wage worker.

The type of medical treatment impacts the amount of your settlement. Someone who has only physical therapy will be receive less money than someone who undergoes surgery.

If you have permanent restrictions the value of your case increases dramatically. This would include limits on standing, walking, and lifting.

Do not let the insurance company tell you something about your settlement that is not based in the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act.

Verify everything with an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation lawyer.

If you have not been paid any of these benefits you should contact an Illinois Work Comp lawyer immediately.
