Workers' compensation is supposed to be provided by all Illinois employers according to state law. If you are injured on the job or if you have a recurring injury that is a result of your job, you are eligible to file for workers' compensation. Your employer usually purchases workers' compensation insurance which ultimately pays for all accepted claims.
As an injured worker, you are eligible to receive coverage for your medical expenses, two-thirds of your normal wage and a lump sum benefit. It is the employee's responsibility to prove an injury is work-related. An employer can dispute the claim of injury or the amount to be paid.
