What does it mean for Your Illinois Work Comp settlement if you cannot return to work, and what will happen?

  • The insurance company will want to find a job for you at all costs. Why?
  • If you cannot return to work because of your work injuries, then the Work Comp Insurance Company will have to pay you for the rest of your life.
  • The Insurance Company will most likely hire a vocational expert to help you search for a job. The vocational person works for the insurance company, not for you.
  • The job search will take some time and it will be like a full time job for you.

But remember this, if you give up on the search or do not cooperate the value of your settlement will drop dramatically. The Workers’ Compensation insurance company will not have to pay you for the rest of your life.
