Workplace accidents and injuries can occur unexpectedly, leaving employees with physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial burdens. Fortunately, Illinois has a workers' compensation system in place to protect workers who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses. Under the Illinois Workers' Compensation Act, eligible employees are entitled to various benefits that help them recover from their injuries and maintain financial stability during their time away from work.

Workers' Compensation Benefits Available to Injured Bartlett Workers

You may be eligible for different coverage or benefits after getting hurt on a job site in Illinois, including:

  • Medical Expenses Coverage - If you sustain a work-related injury or illness, your employer is responsible for covering all necessary medical expenses, including hospital visits, surgeries, doctor appointments, prescription medications, physical therapy sessions, rehabilitation services, diagnostic tests, and assistive devices. You must generally report your work-related impairment, including back and neck injuries, to your employer and receive prompt medical treatment from an authorized health care provider as soon as possible for your medical expenses to be covered by your employer.
  • Temporary Total Disability (TTD) Benefits - If your workplace injury or illness temporarily prevents you from returning to work while receiving necessary medical treatment or recovering fully, you may be entitled to temporary total disability benefits. TTD provides wage replacement at a percentage of an employee's average weekly wage subjecting to statutory caps. After two weeks of lost wages, the amount granted becomes retroactively adjustable.
  • Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) Benefits - If you suffer a permanent loss of function or have to live with a lasting disability due to your work-related injury or illness, including the loss of body parts, loss of use, disfigurement, you may be entitled to permanent partial disability benefits. Doctors assess your condition and assign an impairment rating based on state guidelines to calculate the financial compensation you will receive. The length and rate at which these payments are awarded vary based on age, number of years worked before the accident, wage, and the nature/severity of your injury.
  • Permanent Total Disability (PTD) Benefits - If you sustain injuries that severely impair or disable you, rendering you unable to perform any type of work, you may qualify for PTD benefits. Permanent total disability benefits provide a percentage of pre-injury average weekly wages subjecting to contractual statutory caps set by Illinois statute.
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Services - If an employee's work-related injury prevents them from returning to their previous line of work, vocational rehabilitation services can be provided. Workers' compensation insurance carriers must offer resources to assist in qualified vocational job training to help you gain the necessary skills and reenter the workforce in an alternative capacity. Vocational counselors also assist with job-seeking efforts, including resume preparation, interview skill development, and assistance with applying for available opportunities upon completion of vocational rehabilitation.
