Workers’ Compensation Settlements
There is no provision of the Illinois workers' compensation act that guarantees the injured worker a settlement following the conclusion of medical treatment. The belief that the insurance company or employer will offer you a settlement may be a mistake. Often times once medical treatment has concluded the insurance company or employer will simply close the claim.
The value of a claim depends on the following factors:
- Permanent partial disability sustained
- Ability to return to work full-duty
- Wage loss or earning impairment incurred, if any
- Ability to return to any type of gainful employment
Leonard Law Group handles every case with a skill and knowledge of the Act that allows for maximum compensation to our clients. If the injured worker hires Leonard Law Group subsequent to the insurance company or employer extending a written offer, we charge a 20 percent fee on the total settlement or 50 percent fee above the written offer, whichever is less. If our team cannot increase the offer there is no fee charged.
