  • What is workers’ compensation? How do I file in Washington County IL

    Per the State of Illinois, all employers must carry workers’ compensation coverage, regardless of the number of employees at the business. Additionally, this type of insurance specifically covers claims made in relation to accidents, injuries, and illnesses caused at or by the workplace. To qualify for benefits, you must be able to prove that your injury or illness is directly related to a workplace injury or unsafe working conditions. This is the general process.

  • • Notify your employer within at least 45 days of the injury or within 90 days of exposure to radiation.
    • Your employer will notify their insurance company or workers’ comp administrator to report the claim.
    • Next, if your claim is accepted, you’ ll begin to receive payments. If denied, your employer must provide written reasoning.
    • Last, we’ ll file a hearing with the Workers’ Compensation Commission to prove your eligibility.

  • Contact our staff for more specific details relating to your claim.
