When you are injured while working you have a right to file a claim against your employer and receive benefits under the Illinois Worker's Compensation Act, 820 ILCS 305. You are entitled to certain benefits including your medical bills paid, temporary total disability amounting to two-thirds of your average weekly pay for the time you are off work or on light duty under a doctor's order, and, in most cases, a lump sum of money to compensate you for your injuries. If you are hurt, no matter how minor the injury may seem, you should immediately contact your supervisor and report the accident.
Once you've spoken to your supervisor, it is wise to contact a legal professional to ensure that your rights are protected through the entire process. With the help of our attorneys, you can seek the compensation you need to reach a full recovery.
