Someone called the other day with the question “Does the Insurance Company have to give me a settlement offer?”

The Work Comp company does not have to give you a settlement offer.

But you are entitled to a settlement if you are injured on the job.

Workman’s Compensation Companies prey on people’s lack of knowledge. Many people think they are entitled only to medical bills and time off pay.

You are also entitled to a settlement or permanent partial disability pay.

The way you should approach the company is to make an opening demand for you settlement. This places the ball in their court to respond, and makes them respond to your offer.

Questions about settlements and what you should demand? Feel free to call Illinois Workers Comp Lawyer Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
