The Levy Company v. The Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, 2014 IL App (1st) 131338WC (November 14, 2014) Cook Co., WC Div. (HOFFMAN) Affirmed.
Employee filed two workers' compensation claims arising from shoulder injuries, and returned to work subject to permanent restrictions. Employee sustained back and neck injury at work one year later. Although claims were consolidated, they were individual and separate actions with three different injury dates, and parties were free to settle two while third remained pending. Court properly confirmed Commission's decision approving two lump-sum settlement contracts for shoulder injuries. (HOLDRIDGE, HUDSON, HARRIS, and STEWART, concurring.)
