It is important to remember the following things to make your Illinois Workers’ Compensation strong as it can be:

  • Tell your doctors that you were injured at work, how it happened, and all the parts of your body that were injured;
  • Do not wait to treat with your doctor. The longer you wait to treat the worse it will be for you and your case;
  • Fill out a written accident report right away if at all possible;
  • Remember that many insurance companies will follow injured workers and film them. The videos may be used against you in your Work Comp case.

Doing these things will help the Arbitrator to rule for you because it reinforces their hunches, and it makes your case believable and reasonable.
