Of course you want to get the most value out of your settlement.

Things like restrictions increase the value of the case.

For example, do you have a permanent weight limitation?

Do you have limits on sitting?

Do you have limits on standing?

The Workers’ Compensation insurance company should have to pay extra money if you have any type of restriction.

Did you have to leave your former position and move to another position?

This adds value to your claim.

Did your wage decrease as a result of your injury?

This can dramatically increase your offer.

Does your injury keep you from working at all?

This results in permanent total disability.

The insurance company should increase your work comp settlement to reflect these limitations.

Questions about your offer? Feel free to call Illinois Work Comp Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371 to discuss.
