Insurers Settle Workers Comp Class Action

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (CN) - Cincinnati Insurance and Cincinnati Casualty will pay $4.3 million to Illinois medical providers to settle a class action workers comp complaint in Madison County. Providers can recover up to 90 percent of the amount Cincinnati reduced from bills for treatment of workers compensation patients since 2000.

Cincinnati sent notices to 33,778 providers in June, after the settlement was given preliminary approval.

Plaintiff lawyers at the LakinChapman law firm will share a $770,000 fee with Timothy Campbell of Godfrey, Ill.

Chiropractor Frank Bemis will receive $5,000 for representing the class.
