When you are injured on the job in Illinois you are supposed to be paid.
For instance, your employer should not make you take personal leave, sick leave, or vacation time.
Illinois law provides for payment of 2/3rds of your average weekly wage the year before your injury when a doctor has taken you off work.
Once you have received all necessary medical treatment and have been returned to work you should receive a settlement from your Workers’ Compensation insurance company.
If you do not hear from the insurance company contact an Illinois Work Comp Attorney to find out about your settlement money.
Illinois Work Comp Lawyers do not get paid until you get paid.
