Weissburg's Workers' Compensation Tip of the Month: Settlements

Settlement.

I've seen hundreds of of people walk through my office door with old. unsettled claims, who never even heard of Workers' Compensation settlements till a friend or family member mentioned it to them. "They paid my Temporary Total Disability, they paid my medical, but no one ever said anything about settlement." You have a right to settle your claim.  The important thing to bear in mind is that you can't rely on the Workers' Compensation adjuster to protect your rights or advise you that they exist. You need to inform yourself and protect your own rights, or hire a good attorney to do so. You also need to file your claim within the statute of limitations. don't let thousands of dollars slip away. Get your claim filed and get the settlement you deserve.
The above tip is taken from Horwitz Horwitz & Associates Attorney Mark Weissburg's book, How to win a Workers' Compensation Claim in Illinois. For a free copy please visit one of our locations or call toll free and ask for Jeanette if you would like to receive one in the mail.

Testimonial Tuesday!

Way to go Marc and Mitch. We love our clients and make sure they are taken care of.

"Marc Perper helped me very much. I really felt bad for him because he basically was handed a mess due to another attorney messing up my case to start with. I was and am very impressed with both Marc and Mitch. I also like the fact that they were aware and involved themselves in getting to know about the different Chronic Pain conditions. I met Marc & Mitch at a Reflex Sympethetic Dystrophy Support Group. So many Doctors don't know what RSD is and it makes for a very difficult case, if the Attorney doesn't get involved and get you to the right Doctors to get you help ... that in turn will get you the help you need physically & financially. Marc is a fantastic attorney and was always on top of things. He is truely amazing. The firm is blessed to have such a wonderful attorney!!!" ~Horwitz client who wanted to ramain anonymous
