Workers’ compensation benefits are generally available to injured employees regardless of who is at fault in the given accident. Workers’ compensation benefits are paid by the employer’s chosen insurance provider, but it is the obligation of the injured party to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
In Illinois workers’ compensation laws require employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance in order to compensation employees for injuries that are sustained while on the job. Workers’ compensation laws also outline the types of injuries that are covered by workers’ compensation and the types of damages that the injured party can claim.
