Workers’ Compensation Insurance Companies want you to accept their offers and close out your case.

Remember they want to settle at this time of the year to get cases off their year end books.

But if you try to negotiate with the Work Comp Carrier, they will often tell you no and hope you will give up. They will also tell you that going to an Illinois Work Comp lawyer will eat up your settlement. Not true. The Workers’ Compensation Act in Illinois says that a lawyer can only charge you a fee on the amount over written offer.

In other words, the lawyer only gets a fee on the additional amount he gets for you. The insurance company does not want you to know this.

Get all the facts about your Work Comp case so you can make the best decision possible.
