In Illinois Workers’ Compensation, the most serious leg and knee injuries involve surgeries for acl tears or meniscus tears, or fractures.

Restrictions resulting from serious knee and leg injuries can include limited sitting, standing, and potentially lifting restrictions. You may also need to use a cane, walker or wheelchair.

You may also need long term pain medications, medical equipment, or knee replacements.

You can see that these restrictions may seriously restrict your work abilities. They may also result in future medical costs.

Your settlement should address future medical needs and any work limitations you may have.
