Waiting for your Illinois Workers’ Compensation settlement sure seems like it takes forever. What is up?

The insurance company lawyer has to get approval for everything from the insurance company adjuster. The adjuster works somewhere separate from the attorney. Some adjusters are good and some are bad regarding responding to offers.

The only option when the insurance company is slow in responding is to set the case for trial. This does not necessarily speed things up, but it shows you are serious and the insurance company has to spend their money on their lawyer.

Eventually you may have to prepare for trial to get an offer. This will cost you extra money because you will have to pay a doctor to testify on your behalf. But you may have to do this to get the offer you want.
