What Is Workers’ Compensation?

Workers’ compensation, also known as workers’ comp or workman’s comp, is a system designed to protect and compensate individuals who sustain injuries while performing their job duties. In Illinois, every employee, regardless of fault or employment status, falls under the coverage of the Illinois Workers Compensation Act. The entitlement to benefits when injured at work extends to everyone, whether they are part-time, full-time or cash job workers.

Benefits of Workers’ Compensation in Illinois

Workers’ compensation provides Illinois workers with several key benefits:

  • Temporary Total Disability benefits (TTD): If a work-related injury prevents you from working, you are entitled to receive 2/3 of your average weekly wage as TTD benefits.
  • Medical bill coverage: Workers’ compensation covers 100% of your medical bills related to the work injury.
  • Compensation for permanency: In case your injury results in permanent restrictions, vocational rehabilitation and compensation for the permanency of your injury must be provided by the employer’s insurance company.

Addressing Employer Refusal to Pay Benefits

In instances where an employer refuses to pay workers’ compensation benefits, it is essential to take appropriate action. The experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at Saks, Robinson & Rittenberg, Ltd. can guide you through the process and ensure your rights are protected. With a long record of success in handling such cases, we are not afraid to go to trial to make them pay. The Illinois Workers Compensation Commission holds hearings to determine eligibility for benefits and can award penalties and attorney’s fees against employers who refuse to provide benefits in good faith.
