DuPage County Workers' Compensation Injury Attorney

Types of Workers' Comp Injuries in Illinois

If you suffer an injury or illness on the job, you are eligible for workers' compensation benefits, regardless of who is at fault. Benefits are paid by the insurance company of the employer. Depending on the type of workers' compensation injury, you may be eligible for compensation for medical bills, temporary or permanent loss of work, and several other benefits. Because of the complexities of the system, benefits can sometimes be difficult to collect. In addition, insurance companies will often try to settle quickly to keep costs to a minimum.
