Workers’ Compensation

The workplace can be a very dangerous place. Every year, thousands of workers are injured on the job, some very seriously, others fatally.

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act

It may be small solace, but injured workers and survivors of workers who have been killed can and should seek compensation for their losses. Following an injury, the insurance company will usually try to settle quickly to minimize costs. That’s why it is in the best interests of the injured worker to hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

Most people employed in the State of Illinois are covered under the Workers’ Compensation Act. There are several major benefits under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act, including:

  • Medical expense benefits covered at 100% with no deductible or co-pay
  • Temporary total disability benefits to allow you to heal from your injuries
  • Permanent partial disability benefits for injuries suffered resulting in a partial loss of the use of a body part
  • Permanent total disability if your injury leaves you unable to do any kind of work
  • Wage-loss differential if your injury prohibits you from doing your job and you must take a lower-paying job
  • Vocation retraining if you cannot return to your job because of your injury and must pursue another occupation
  • Survivor benefits for the dependent heirs of a worker killed on the job
