FutureGen is a near zero emissions coal fueled power plant.

Carbon Dioxide emissions will be captured and stored underground.

The Illinois plant will be located near Jacksonville.

Construction will involve around 1600 jobs, with approximately 600 permanent jobs.

Anyone injured on the job whether during construction or while working at the plant has the ability to file an Illinois Workers’ Compensation claim.

This ensures all rights granted under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act.

This includes payment of all medical bills, payment of off work pay or Temporary Total Disability at 2/3rds of your average weekly wage, and a settlement based on the permanent partial disability you suffered as a result of the work injury.

Most people are not aware that it does not cost any upfront money to hire an experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney to protect your rights.

In a work injury you do not have to pay your lawyer until the case is settlement and you have your money.

Illinois law provides that a Work Comp lawyer can only charge 20 percent of your settlement as attorney fees.

This is very important because it protects your interests and makes sure that the insurance company pays everything that your are entitled to as a result of your injury.

Be safe out there working on the FutureGen project, but remember if you are hurt on the job contact an experienced Work Comp lawyer.
