There is typically a narrow window in which your employer must pay an award for workers' comp benefits. If they have not paid you an award, such as a commission or arbitration award, for workers' comp benefits, you can seek compensatory penalties with assistance from a lawyer. If it can be proven that there is no basis for denying or delaying the claim, penalties can be awarded that are as high as 25 to 50 percent of the award. Also, there could be a penalty of $30.00 per day for late TTD benefits.
These situations are complex and require the attention of an experienced lawyer. There must be a request for penalties filed with the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission to pursue such benefits. There is a significant amount of paperwork that must be requested, and the petition must be filed in a timely manner. Because our firm is focused on workers' comp claims, we are highly knowledgeable of the law. When it comes to handling unique cases, we have the experience necessary to achieve a favorable outcome.
