The $64 million verdict was a staggering $13 million higher than the previous record verdict in Illinois of $51 million.

Chicago workers' compensation attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates have been instrumental in helping the injured workers of Illinois. In 2010, attorney Marc Perper convinced the Supreme Court of Illinois to reverse an appellate court decision that was unfavorable to workers who were on temporary light duty. The Illinois Supreme Court agreed with Perper's argument that when an employer fires an individual while the person is on temporary light duty, regardless of whether the firing is for 'cause' - the employer must reinstate weekly disability benefits. Attorney Mark Weissburg authored the book, "How to Win a Workers' Compensation Claim in Illinois" providing useful insight on how to file and win an Illinois workers compensation claim.
