In Illinois, employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. Most employers purchase workers’ compensation coverage from an insurance company, some employers obtain the state’s approval to self-insure. Employees can check an employer’s workplace notice at the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) website or contact the IWCC’s Insurance Compliance Division at (866) 352-3033.

After an injury, the insurance companies will usually try to settle quickly to minimize its costs. It is highly recommended that the injured worker’s hire a workers’ compensation attorney. The lawyers at Ankin Law Office are highly experienced in negotiating and litigating workers’ compensation claims. With the help of our attorneys, you are more likely to get the settlement you deserve
