What To Do If Denied A Workers’ Compensation Claims Appeal

Workers injured on the job in Illinois or while working for an Illinois employer are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits, but many initial claims are denied. The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission strictly regulates the process for approving medical treatment, weekly cash benefits and lump-sum settlements, with many initial claims denied strictly on technicalities.
