Companies have a duty to keep their employees safe from harm in the workplace. Unfortunately, accidents still happen and employees regularly suffer injuries while on the job. The Illinois workers’ compensation system exists to guarantee that workers receive proper benefits for their job-related injuries and illnesses without going to trial. These benefits may include medical services, temporary total disability payments, and partial permanent disability payments. Most employers’ insurance companies will try to settle workers’ compensation claims as quickly and cheaply as possible, without the employee’s best interests in mind. For this reason, you should always consult with an attorney before you speak with your company’s insurance company.
