How do you know when your Workers’ Compensation cases is ready to settle?

In Illinois, you must complete your treatment for the work injury before you can settle.

This means that your medical tests are over.

The surgery is done.

The therapy is completed.

The doctor releases you, or you stop going to the doctor.

You may continue to take medication for the condition, and settle your case.

The most important thing to remember is that when you settle your case it closes out any future medical treatment.

So be certain you are do not need any more treatment before you settle.

Now you are ready to ask the insurance company for your settlement offer.

Want to know if the offer is good enough?

Feel free to call Illinois Workers’ Compensation Attorney Dirk May at 309-827-4371.
