Illinois WorkComper is an independent guide to the Illinois workers’ compensation system for injured workers and the general public.

Our website contains comprehensive and up-to-date articles on a range of workers’ compensation issues.

Each article is sourced exclusively from these primary materials:

  • Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act
  • Illinois Workers’ Occupational Diseases Act
  • Rules Governing Practice Before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission
  • Case law of the Illinois Supreme Court, Appellate Court, and Workers’ Compensation Commission

Citations with links are included in every article.

Illinois WorkComper shares in the growing belief of free and open access to the law for everyone.

Our goal is for injured workers to gain a firm understanding of the issues affecting their claims – not to give definitive answers to their legal questions. The body of Illinois workers’ compensation law is massive and continuously evolving. We simply cannot cover every unique legal situation.

You may have noticed the disclaimer at the bottom of every page. It is very important to understand that Illinois WorkComper is not your lawyer, you are not our client, and we do not provide legal advice. Most workers’ compensation lawyers will provide a free consultation if you think you need help.

We wish you good luck with your claim.
