Was in accident, truck driver. Was on WC IL. Went back after 3 months of physical therapy, Has been hurting again and wants to go back on WC for more therapy. He didn't settle or didn't sign nothing. Can he reopen his case after 10 months?
If you husband is only eligible for WC under Illinois law, you need to address this to an Illinois attorney. However, if there are sufficient contacts with PA through his employer, he may be able to bring a claim in PA. I would suggest that you schedule a consultation with an experienced PA WC attorney to review the facts of your case to see if there is any remedy in PA. If not, then you need to talk to an Illinois lawyer.See question
my husband is receiving workers compensations checks for a back injury and his lawyer started taking his fee out of this last check my husband received can the lawyer still take 30 percent of my husbands settlement?
Workers' Compensation fees are capped at 20%. The answer to your question depends on the terms of the fee agreement he signed with his attorney. As a general rule, fees are recovered from both ongoing benefits and settlement if the attorney helped to generate the benefits or protect them. Look at the fee agreement.See question

Yes, they may. SSD does not protect you from being offered a light duty job. The Workers' Compensation process is very complicated and you really should seek a consultation with an experienced Workers' Compensation attorney.See question

You are allowed to make money; however, you are obligated to report income to the WC carrier and they may be entitled to an offset. It is more complicated than you might think…especially, if you were earning money in this fashion before your work injury. Further, your activities could be used to construe greater earning power and to try to push you off your WC benefits. WC benefits are not taxable. You really should consult with and experienced Workers' Compensaiton attorney as soon as possible.See question

You should deb asking your attorney this question. You may be able to oppose it, but doing so may give the appearance that you are hiding something. Your attorney can discuss the best strategy with you. I suspect that the defense attorney is looking to ensure that you did not make any assertions to the Welfare office that are inconsistent with your testimony. I think most Judges will allow it to be discovered.See question
