What should you do if you get a Workers’ Compensation Settlement offer, or if the insurance company does not make you an offer?

The most important thing to know is that pursuant to Illinois Law you are entitled to a settlement if you are injured on the job.

The settlement may vary from a small amount to a very large sum, but you are entitled to something.

Once you receive an offer you should check with an experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney.

A lawyer can explain the value of your case and whether the insurance company is making a fair offer.

Some Work Comp insurance companies will tell that your case is not worth anything, or they will fail to make any offer and hope you go away.

If this happens you need to hire a lawyer and go after your settlement.

The advantage to hiring a Work Comp lawyer is that it does not cost you anything until you make a recovery.

The fee is 20 percent of your recovery.

You need to protect yourself because insurance companies are taking advantage of people who do not understand the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Law.

Make sure that you check with an experienced Illinois Work Lawyer to protect your rights and get the settlement you deserve.
