Category: Workers’ Compensation

Illinois employers that have hazardous chemicals must provide personal protective equipment to any employees who work around them. Workers who are sickened or injured because of workplace exposure to hazardous chemicals may file claims for workers' compensation benefits. 
When workers' compensation doctors in Illinois tell injured workers their injuries are not work-related, victims have a right to seek another opinion under the two-doctor rule. To keep costs down, it is common for physicians to tell patients their current medical problems don't stem from a work-related injury, especially when Preferred Provider Programs are involved.
