Sometimes the basics of Illinois Workers’ Compensation law are the most important.
If you were injured on the job, then you are entitled to a settlement.
It may not be much, but you should received something from the insurance company.
Some insurance companies will hope that injured workers do not understand the law and walk away without a settlement.
The general rule is that you have 3 years from the date of accident to file an application of claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission.
Do not forget your settlement money and lose out.
