How long can you get workers’ comp in Illinois?

Workers’ compensation benefits will vary from person to person, injury to injury. For example, some people may receive medical bill compensation, while others may need more complicated forms of compensation, such as disability benefits, which are calculated by taking an average of the person’s wages and paying out a percentage of that.

In terms of how long a person can receive workers’ compensation benefits, again, this depends on the injury. If you lose the ability to use a certain body part, the amount of time that you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits will vary from part to part.

For more minor injuries that do not result in temporary or permanent disabilities, workers’ compensation benefits will typically involve a worker being paid for wages lost and being reimbursed for medical costs.
