Many injured workers would be glad to go back to work and get on with their lives, but the Workers Compensation insurance company refuses to pay their medical bills.

What is going on? Why does the Workers Compensation insurance company do this? I think many Insurance Companies believe that a certain percentage of people will let their health insurance pay for the bills and go away. This will save the Workers Compensation company money in the long run.

The only way to approach the problem is to file a Workers Compensation claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission and seek payment of your medical expenses. In addition, you are entitled to pay for time off work, and permanent partial disability which is payment for your injuries.
