For injuries after August 31, 2011 new rules apply to settlement value.

What this means for the value of your settlement is unknown.

Before we could predict within a range what a certain injury was worth.

What a new injury is worth is pure guess work at this point.

I would like to hear from you what kind of offers you are receiving.

Please feel free to call me, Dirk May, at 309-827-4371, or send comments to this blog.

I will keep people posted about the kind of offers Workers’ Compensation insurance companies are making at this time.

My assumption is that insurance companies will be very cautious with their offers till the new law is sorted out.
