Injuries Covered Under Workers’ Comp Laws
Workers’ compensation in Illinois is a no-fault system, meaning you have every reason to seek legal help to obtain compensation for your injuries. You may be entitled to receive benefits even if your employer took every step necessary to fix hazards and address other safety concerns.
Illinois workers’ compensation laws cover a substantial range of injuries, including:
- Broken bones, nerve damage and soft tissue damage
- Amputations and paralysis
- Head, neck and back injuries
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Occupational illnesses
- Aggravation of pre-existing conditions
