Illinois Workers’ Compensation claims after August 31, 2011 are treated differently than old claims.

Insurance Companies will be watching these claims closely.

They will argue that their settlement value is reduced.

Work Comp companies will fight to find doctors who will testify that there is little or no permanent injury.

The value of settlement offers will probably be much lower.

What has been your experience?

Have you seen any offers for your injury after August 2011?
