Legal Guidance Regarding Lump-Sum Settlements
The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission approves lump-sum settlements in cases involving permanent temporary or partial disability.
Should You Accept A Lump-Sum Settlement?
Is a workers’ compensation lump-sum settlement right for you and your family? The rules regarding receiving a lump-sum settlement are very specific. Upon approval, the injured or disabled workers forfeit all future claims to subsequent benefits for medical treatment. Before applying for or accepting a lump-sum settlement, it is important to understand your rights and options.
