Seeking workers' compensation benefits in Illinois

Most people in Illinois probably feel pretty safe at their jobs every day. It is likely that the majority of people don't work in dangerous situations each day, but there are some who do. Workers in the industrial and construction industry, for example, put themselves in dangerous situations all the time by using heavy machinery, working at great heights and traveling in vehicles. For these individuals, the potential to suffer a serious injury on-the-job is real.

When Illinois residents do suffer a worksite injury, they may be confused about what to do in the immediate aftermath of the incident. These individuals should, first and foremost, make sure that they get the medical attention they need for the injury in question, but they must also inform their employer of the incident as soon as possible. From there, it may be necessary for an injured worker to pursue workers' compensation benefits.

Why would an individual need to apply for workers' compensation benefits? Well, the extent of the injury in question is a key part of the situation. What if the worker isn't able to return to the job while recovering? What is that worker supposed to do about the income that is needed to make ends meet? Providing a means for support for an injured worker is the very reason why the workers' compensation system is in place in Illinois.
