Workers’ Compensation in Marion

Getting Injured Employees Back on their Feet

Following a workplace injury, obtaining the necessary funds for recovery is crucial. While most employers treat their employees fairly, some will go to great lengths to misrepresent the severity of the injury or the right of the injured person to receive benefits. When a person is denied compensation, they are not only left to cover their own medical bills, but they must also deal with a lack of income. At Howerton, Dorris, Stone & Lambert, we believe you deserve better. We have helped many clients fight for fair compensation following a workplace injury.

Illinois Laws for Employers

All businesses in the state of Illinois are required to pay for workers’ compensation insurance. There is also a state-owned fund that can be used to pay out benefits when employers fail to follow through. In order for a worker to claim benefits, there are a few things they must do first.

To file a claim for compensation in Illinois, a worker must:

  • File the claim within 45 days
  • Give details of the accident
  • Note the symptoms the injured person is experiencing
  • Be accurate in reporting
