Employees who have been injured while performing the duties of their job are normally entitled to three types of benefits under the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act:
- Payment of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment related to the work injury;
- Weekly payments to the employee totaling 66.67% during the time the employee is unable to return to work as a result of his or her work-related injury; and
- Payment for the amount of permanent disability to the body part injured in the work-related accident, usually paid as a lump sum settlement at the conclusion of the employee’s case.
