  • Filing a Belleville, IL Workers’ Compensation Claim

    You might be wondering “what, exactly, is workers’ comp?” It’s a great question; workers’ compensation laws protect injured workers and workers that have developed a serious illness as a result of their occupation or workplace. Additionally, only injuries and illnesses that are solely caused by the workplace are eligible to receive workers’ comp payments. Also, not all work injuries are equal in the eyes of workers’ comp laws. The nature and severity of an injury will determine what benefit category it falls into including temporary partial disabilities, temporary total disabilities, permanent partial disabilities, permanent total disabilities. Your benefit category means different levels of compensation, access to medical care and even re-training in some cases.
