Recent changes in Illinois worker's compensation laws make it more important than ever that an injured worker seek legal counsel before agreeing to any financial settlement. The attorneys at Sexner and Associates have the experience and knowledge to make sure injured employees get the settlement they deserve.

Recently, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn signed a wide reaching workers compensation law intended to reform the compensation system and lower costs for employers statewide. Some of the changes included a 30 percent cut to the workers’ compensation fee schedule, a preferred provider program that is intended to create cost effective medical treatment for employees and a change to the procedures involved when training and appointing arbitrators.

Although the workers compensation reforms were primarily intended to lower costs for employers and spur the economy, the unfortunate byproduct was of course the likelihood of lower awards and compensation for those most in need of financial help – the injured worker.

Despite these recent legal setbacks, the experienced attorneys affiliated with the law offices of Mitchell S. Sexner & Associates LLC always stay abreast of the changes to Illinois laws and the best ways to maximize compensation to deserving injured clients.
