Can you get a decent Work Comp settlement when you have a back injury, but have not required a surgery?

The odds are that your settlement will be larger with a surgery, however, you may still have a good settlement.

Objective evidence will be very important. For example, an MRI showing herniated discs will be valuable. A fractured spine can also show up on an xray.

Herniated discs and broken bones often result in ongoing pain.

Restrictions also increase the value of your Illinois Work Comp case.

You may end up with permanent restrictions due to broken bones and herniated discs. This can dramatically increase the value of your Workmans Comp case.
