Workers' Compensation

Overview

Workers' compensation is a system of benefits paid by employers to workers who experience work-related injuries or diseases, regardless of fault.  We represent employees who are injured while performing work.  Disputes between an employee and employer regarding work-related injuries and illness are heard by the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission.  A case is first tried by an arbitrator, whose decision may be reviewed by a panel of three commissioners. Cases may then be appealed to the circuit court, Appellate Court and Illinois Supreme Court.  The vast majority of disputes are resolved by settlement.
