Chicago Workers Compensation Lawyers

What is workers’ compensation?

Workers’ compensation consists of a number of different kinds of benefits provided by the Illinois State Laws to individuals who have suffered work-related injuries or illnesses under the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. The Act is administered by the Illinois Industrial Commission, which is a State agency. Under Illinois workers compensation law every worker who sustains an injury or illness while on the job is eligible for financial protection and security. Injuries which are caused by repetitive stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome are also covered, as are strokes, heart attacks and other physical problems that are directly caused by a worker’s employment.

Almost every employee in the State of Illinois is covered by the Act from the moment their employment begins with their employer, and benefits are paid to an injured worker regardless of who is at fault for the injury and the types of injuries sustained.
