Here are some big issues that occur in Illinois Workers’ Compensation Cases:

History of injury in the medical records. If you do not mention your work accident to the hospital or doctor, then you have an uphill battle.

Surveillance videos. Private investigation tapes of you working in the yard or on the golf course. Not always pretty.

Spotty medical treatment. The insurance company will try to nail you for long periods without treatment.

Not doing a strong job search. This will drop your case value quickly.

Combative witness. Fighting with the opposing attorney, and being surly before the judge will not help you.
