At Strong Law Offices, we will stand up for you and help in every way possible to maximize your settlement in an Illinois workers' comp claim. Our team of attorneys is experienced in handling these claims, and we only represent those who have been injured. We never represent the insurance company or large corporations.
How Is the Amount Determined?
Permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits can be awarded to an individual suffering from a workplace injury, with the ability to someday return to the workplace or return to the workplace on light duty immediately. If an individual is unable to return to the workplace at all, they may be entitled to permanent total disability benefits. These are awarded to someone who is permanently disabled on a weekly basis for the remainder of their lifetime.
The amount for permanent partial benefits is determined by the Illinois workers' compensation commission and given on a weekly basis. The amount is determined by the type of injury. This could be categorized as anything from a finger injury, to injuries to the "body as a whole," meaning an injury that results in the inability to do the things he or she was able to do before the injury. The permanent partial disability rate is used as a multiplier combined with the legal percentage of permanent partial disability in order to compute a settlement. Strong Law Offices advocates for the highest obtainable permanent partial disability settlements or awards as legally possible.
Maximizing Your Settlement With the Lawyers at Strong Law Offices
It is important to know that the amount is completely contingent upon the extent of the injury and the type of medical treatment necessary to assist in the recovery process. You should work with a lawyer who understands the Illinois workers' comp rules and how to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible.
Our Peoria permanent disability claims attorneys will make sure you get the medical treatment you need including MRIs, CAT scans, and vocational and physical rehabilitation. If you have been offered a settlement by the insurance company, our skilled lawyers can also assist you in negotiations in order to maximize the workers' comp settlement.
