Workers Compensation Reform on the Horizon


The Illinois Congress was sworn in on January 8th ; in the two weeks leading up to that date there was a major push to reform Workers Compensation law in Illinois. Fortunately for injured workers the vote in Congress was not called and the current law remains in effect.

It is anticipated that a major Workers Compensation Reform Bill to overhaul the entire current system will come up for a vote. If these new laws are passed my firm’s, and other Workers Compensation attorneys’, ability to obtain justice for clients that are injured at work could be restricted. I am letting you know about some of the potential reforms so that if in the future we ask for your assistance in contacting your Congressman you will understand how important making that contact truly is.

Please see full article below for more information.
