What Should I Expect When Filing a Worker’s Compensation Claim in Illinois?

Well, your case is gonna be assigned to an arbitrator who is appointed to hear your case on behalf of the Illinois Worker’s Compensation Commission. During the interim, your attorney is gonna order certified copies of your medical records and your medical bills. The attorney will work with you and any other witnesses’ testimony to be presented at arbitration. The insurance company for your employer may demand that you undergo what’s called an independent medical examination. That’s when the insurance company picks a doctor of their choosing to evaluate you and your claim and make an opinion as to whether or not your injuries were caused by your work accident. Their deposition may eventually be taken.

Your attorney should also be taking the deposition of your treating physicians. Those physicians will be asked the same thing, whether or not your injury was caused by your work accident. The case will be set in front of the arbitrator, and the deposition of those physicians will be given to the arbitrator along with the copy of your medical records
and bills.
