In August 2007 we posted the following blog regarding an Illinois personal injury and work comp claim as the result of a rear end collision in Madison County Illinois, the case was an Illinois worker's compensation claim along with a an Illinois negligence claim against the at fault driver because the injured passenger was on official work duty when the rear end car collision occurred. See:
The at fault driver had an Illinois automobile accident liability coverage of $100,000; initially the insurer for the negligent Illinois driver, denied paying on the claim. We immediately file d a lawsuit on behalf of our client and the day before all the party deposition were to take place we settled for $95,000 plus payment of all court costs. The Illinois worker's compensation claim resolved approximately 6 months prior to the negligence case and settled for $25,000 plus $60,000 in benefits paid.
