Medical Benefits


Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier is responsible for paying for the medical services reasonably required to cure your injuries. Under the Act, you have the right to see a doctor of your choice.

Temporary Total Disability Benefits

If your injuries result in your not being able to return to work, or if your employer cannot accommodate your restrictions, the Act entitles you to weekly benefits until you are able to return to work.

Permanent Partial Disability Benefits

Partial Disability

After you have been released from all medical treatment, the Act provides that you are entitled to compensation for the permanent disability resulting from your injury.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a time limit for reporting a work accident?

Yes, you should immediately report any accident to your supervisor. (Notice to a co-worker is not notice to your employer.) Under Illinois law, you are required to report your accident within 45 days. In addition, you should seek medical attention and be sure to give a complete history of the accident.
