Back injuries and settlements in Illinois Workers’ Compensation cases depend on your permanent restrictions and your medical treatment.

For example, the value of your back case increases if you have a surgery.

Fusions are usually worth more than discectomies.

A herniated disc with surgery is usually worth more than a herniated disc without surgery.

After you have surgery and the doctor places you on restrictions, the value of your case also increases.

Permanent partial disability is reflected through the limitations that are placed upon you.

For example, the value of your case increases with weight limits, bending and twisting limits, or standing and walking limits.
