The Workers’ Compensation Insurance Company will sometimes refuse to pay you what is called TTD or Temporary Total Disability. This is equal to 2/3 of your average weekly wage.
Why? Because they feel like it. Or they want to force you to settle for a low amount.
It is really tough to fight the Workmans Compensation Company when it refuses to pay you. But you do not have a choice.
You must take the Work Comp Insurance Company to trial. It will take some time to get ready for the trial. However, the only way to get paid the money you are entitled to is show the insurance company you are ready for trial.
Questions about Work Comp and why you are not being paid? Feel free to call Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
