The Illinois Workers Compensation Act is a "no fault" wage replacement system designed to pay the injured worker both medical benefits and lost wages during his or her period of incapacity from work. "No fault" means that fault is not considered when determining whether or not you have a case, but the employer's liability is limited to benefits specified in the statute. In other words, employees who get hurt on the job cannot sue their employer.

 

The Illinois Workers' Compensation Act provides compensation for accidental injuries or death suffered in the course of employment, including: payment for medical expenses, payment for lost wages, compensation for the permanent nature of your injury and payment for vocational retraining or re-schooling if it is needed.

 

Most Illinois workers are covered under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, including workers hired in Illinois but injured while working in another state or those workers who were injured while working in another state and their employer's principle place of business is in Illinois. The only exception to this is if you are an independent contractor and even then you may be eligible for benefits if you are really an independent contractor in name only.

 

All Illinois work injury claims are handled through the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. The main office is located at the Thompson Center in downtown Chicago and there are numerous hearing locations throughout the state. The Commission operates the state court system for workers' compensation cases. Workers' compensation claims are not lawsuits so there is no Judge or jury trial. Rather an Arbitrator hears evidence in disputed claims and makes decisions that can be appealed to a three person Commission panel.

It is important to you and your family that you contact us if you have been injured at work.
