How Do I File For Workers' Comp?
Every year in Illinois there are between 38,000 and 45,000 workers' compensation claims filed for traumatic injuries, repetitive injuries, and mental stress injuries. These applications are filed at the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission located at 100 W. Randolph St.
Believe it or not, it’s not uncommon for workers’ comp insurance companies to deny a legitimate claim. After all, these businesses make money by collecting premiums, not distributing compensation. Insurance companies will use any excuse to keep from covering your injury. However, you do have another course of action—filing an appeal.
The state of Illinois has a no-fault system and is only concerned with whether the injury or injuries arose out of and were in the course of the employee's work duties. If this burden can be satisfied, then the injured worker may qualify for benefits.
