Workers' compensation is a system of benefits provided by the law to most workers who have job-related injuries or diseases. These benefits are yours, regardless of fault. Almost every injured employee whose job is localized in the state of Illinois is covered by the law. As an employee, you are covered from the moment you begin your job.

Categories of Benefits
In most cases, the law covers injuries that are caused in whole or in part by your work.
A worker injured by the repetitive use of a part of the body is covered, as is a person who experiences a stroke, a heart attack, or any other physical problem caused by work. A worker with a pre-existing condition may receive benefits if he or she can show that the job aggravated those conditions.
The law provides the following benefit categories:
Medical care that is reasonably required to cure or relieve the employee of the effects of the injury
Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits while the employee is off work and recovering from the injury
Temporary Partial Disability (TPD) benefits while the employee is recovering from the injury but working on light duty
Vocational rehabilitation or maintenance benefits are provided to an injured worker who is participating in an approved vocational rehabilitation program
Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) benefits for an employee who sustains a permanent disability or disfigurement but can still work
Permanent Total Disability (PTD) benefits for an employee who is rendered permanently unable to work
Death benefits for surviving family members
