Illinois Workers' Compensation Benefits

In Illinois, Workers’ Compensation benefits generally fit into the following categories:

  • Medical benefits: If your injury was work-related, your employer is responsible for paying your medical expenses, including hospital care, medication, physical therapy and other forms of treatment.
  • Temporary total disability (TTD): If your injury keeps you out of work for three or more days, your employer must provide you with two-thirds of your average weekly income for the previous year.
  • Permanent total disability (PTD): If your injury prevents you from ever returning to work, you may be eligible to receive benefits for life.
  • Death benefits: If a workplace injury results in death, the spouse and/or children of the deceased are entitled to receive death benefits in the amount of two-thirds of the deceased worker’s average weekly wage.

Many injured workers settle for far less than their claim is worth. Don’t let this happen to you.

Workers' Compensation and Third-Party Claims

If a negligent third party caused your accident, you may be able to pursue an injury claim in addition to a Workers’ Compensation claim. Third parties include contractors, subcontractors, equipment manufacturers and other parties who are not your employer or a fellow employee. Our lawyers can help you explore all avenues of compensation.
