Katz Friedman Wins Three Important Cases

Katz Friedman recently won three important cases before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. These cases involved injuries which took place after the changes to the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act in 2011, specifically the provisions changing the definition of permanent partial disability and the inclusion of American Medical Association Impairment Ratings. In all three cases against Caterpillar, our firm was able to obtain awards from the judge well in excess of the settlement offers and ensuring the workers would have lifetime medical benefits for their injuries.
