You will never have to pay a fee unless your case is successful.
Chicago Workers' Compensation Center

When workers are injured or become ill in the workplace, workers’ compensation laws provide a safety net to help compensate individuals for, among other things, their medical expenses, lost wages, and injuries. In a workers’ compensation claim, unlike a personal injury claim, injured workers are entitled to receive statutory benefits irrespective of whether they are at fault for the accident. But they are not allowed to recover for their pain and suffering or other damages that are recoverable in a personal injury lawsuit.

Answering Key Questions about Worker's Compensation

The key question in a workers’ compensation claim is whether the injury or illness was caused (or made worse) by the injured worker’s employment. Although this question may seem simple to answer, it frequently turns on the application of complex legal concepts. For this reason, a workers’ compensation attorney is your best ally to ensure that you receive maximum monetary compensation for the permanent nature of your injury, medical expenses, lost wages, vocational rehabilitation, if necessary, and other benefits.
