Getting Paid While Injured at Work

If you have been injured on the job, then Illinois law requires that you be paid while you are unable to work.

The payment due is 2/3 of your average weekly wage for the year before your injury.

You must take several steps to insure payment.

Get an off work slip from your doctor.

Contact your human resources Department and your Workers’ Compensation insurance adjuster with your off work information.

Obtain information from the insurance company regarding how often you will be paid and the method of payment.

If there is a delay in payment or any questions about the payment, make sure to contact an experienced Illinois Workers’ Compensation attorney to get your payments started.

Remember, you do not have to pay an Workers’ Compensation Attorney until you recover money on your claim.
