Illinois Workers' Compensation Law is a system that provides financial benefits to employees who are injured on the job or suffer an occupational illness. These benefits may include medical care, temporary or permanent disability payments, and rehabilitation services.
Under Illinois law, most employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance to cover the costs of these benefits. If an employee is injured on the job or becomes ill due to their job, they may be entitled to receive workers' compensation benefits.
To file a claim for workers' compensation benefits in Illinois, an employee must first notify their employer of the injury or illness. The employer is then required to report the injury or illness to their workers' compensation insurance carrier. The insurance carrier will review the claim and determine whether to approve or deny the benefits. If the claim is approved, the employee will receive the appropriate benefits. If the claim is denied, the employee may appeal the decision through the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.
