Chicago Workers Comp lawyer Scott DeSalvo explains the ins and outs of Injury and Workers Comp cases in this video.

Here is what you are usually entitled to in Workers Comp in Chicago and throughout Illinois.

Be aware that while Workers Comp is similar from state to state, but it is not identical.If you got hurt at work, you are entitled to:

  • 2/3 of your pay while off work with a doctor's note.
  • accomodate work restrictions if you have work restrictions
  • employer must pay your work-related injury medial bills
  • a lump sum payment once you reach "MMI" (maximum medial improvement).

If you have a permanent injury and cannot return to your old job, then you can get work retraining, a wage differential award or if you cannot return to work, you may be entitled to a finding that you are totally and permanently disabled. That means you have your medial covered and get paid for the rest of your working life, because you can no longer work, and cannot do another viable job.
