Anyone injured while working on the job is entitled to workers' compensation benefits
. While the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act provides compensation for lost wages
, medical treatment
and disability awards
, you must never assume that an employer or the insurance company they use are really concerned about your injury or that you will receive the compensation to which you are entitled for that injury.
Injuries at the workplace can have devastating effects to the worker and to the family as well. Injuries can involve the loss of income over a period of time and require significant medical treatment for recovery. Injuries at work while on the job may result in a permanent disability and the loss of future wages and earning potential.
