In Illinois, filing an application of claim with the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission starts your case.

This makes your case official.

There are several advantages to filing a Workers’ Compensation claim.

It protects the case from being denied for an untimely filing. There is only a certain amount of time the injured worker has to file a case.

It puts the insurance company on notice that you have a work injury. Sometimes a defense can be raised for late notice of a work claim.

It shows the Work Comp insurance company that you are serious about your work injury claim.

The application of claim must be filed on a specific form.
