Settlements & Awards


My firm primarily handles workers’ compensation and personal injury cases in Southern Illinois.  Workers’ compensation settlements or awards are based upon a percentage of disability and the injured worker’s wage rate.  The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act limits the amount of recovery.  However, if the injuries were caused by a negligent third party or a defective part, a separate lawsuit can be brought.  The following is a list of some of the Southern Illinois workers’ compensation and personal injury settlements or awards that I have obtained for my clients:
