What is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation benefits are provided for by law in Illinois and are available to any person who is injured on the job, regardless of fault. These benefits include payment for medical treatment, time off of work and any permanent disability resulting from the work injury. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act requires all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance to cover these benefits.

Workplace accidents can severely impact your current and future ability to earn a living, so timely reporting of the accident, receipt of immediate medical treatment and documentation of your injury are of utmost importance.
