The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law provides 3 basic rights for an injured worker.

The right to payment for related medical treatment.

The right to payment of 66 percent of your average weekly wage for injury related time off work.

The right to payment for your work related disability resulting from the injury.

The process is not perfect, or pretty, or fast paced.

You need to realize there are certain rules and timelines that need to followed.

The insurance companies all differ in the way they handle cases.

But the most thing to remember is that you can usually negotiate to increase the value of your settlement.

Impatience is the enemy of the highest settlement value for your case.
