    Default Changes in WC Laws in Illinois Starting 2013

    My workers compensation claim was made in the State of: Illinois, I heard that starting in 2013 that the Workcomp laws are to going to change. I heard that they were no longer going to be settlements awarded for injuries. Does anyone have any info on this or have they heard anything about this. Also wondering if it would be retro active or just on new claims after 2013. Thank you.

    Sounds far fetched to me, someone's pulling your leg.

    Thanks Tony, this info was coming from our Bean counter at the place of employment. I could understand why he would be spreading that information.

    I think it's more of a wish than fact.
    I had a past employer tell me that if you smoke cigarettes, you''ll have to pay back all medical paid on your claim.
    These people can be very creative with their evil wishes.
