Illinois workers’ compensation laws provide disability benefits to severely injured workers, and the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) offers legal protections to those who are substantially impaired.

Workers’ compensation is designed to help individuals who have been injured at work, regardless of whether that injury results in long-term or permanent disability. That said, there are certain benefits that can be granted to workers who have been disabled on the job, such as a wage differential or permanent disability benefits.
