If you have been injured at work, it is critical that you speak with a workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible. Missing time from work due to injury can place undue hardship on you and your family. If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act.
Hurt at Work? Our workers’ compensation lawyers are there for you
To preserve your rights under the Act, it is important to move quickly. Discuss the circumstances of your injury with an attorney familiar with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act and ensure that you receive all benefits to which you are entitled. Under the law, employees are entitled to medical benefits for reasonable and necessary care. In addition, the Act provides for temporary total disability (TTD) benefits equal to two-thirds (66%) of your normal weekly income. Finally, the Act entitles an injured employee to a permanency settlement based on the injuries sustained.
