There is no filing fee in Illinois to file a Workers’ Compensation case.

However, you must pay for medical records to prove your case.

You must also pay for a doctor to testify on your behalf.

This can cost from $600 to $1,500 for each doctor.

There are also court reporter costs.

All these costs are the responsibility of the injured worker.

The advantage of using a Work Comp lawyer is that they will pay for these costs up front, and you will not have to pay for them until you receive your settlement.
