Your Legal Rights Under Chicago Workers’ Compensation Law
Illinois law may entitle you to total temporary disability (TTD) benefits for your work injury. TTD pays you two-thirds of your salary while you are away from work getting medical treatment and rehabilitation for your injury.
You may also be entitled to a lump sum of money to pay your medical bills. This will be based on the nature and extent of your injury. In some cases, you may also be entitled to getting your medical bills paid in the future, even after your workers’ compensation hearing. Every case is different.
