The Illinois Workers’ Compensation law is complicated.

The basics are straight forward but getting to a fair settlement is not always easy.

The bottom line is that an experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney does not cost you any upfront money.

A lawyer can only charge you 20 percent of what you recover in your case.

This means the lawyer has an interest in maximizing your settlement because the lawyer makes money when you make money.

The insurance company has plenty of lawyers advising it of ways to defend, delay and minimize your recovery.

It only makes sense to have someone to look out for your rights.

It also helps to have a lawyer who you can ask questions.

This gives you the peace of mind that you are getting all you entitled to according to the law.

It does not hurt to call a lawyer and ask questions about your case and let them know what the insurance company has told you.

An experienced workers’ compensation attorney will talk to you for free and explain your rights and answer your questions on the initial call.

Representing yourself in an Illinois work injury case can turn out to be a costly mistake.
