Study looks into workers' compensation costs in Illinois

Working for a living can be tough. Professionals in any field can face injuries. Those who are injured on the job are generally entitled to compensation to help cover the costs associated with the injury. These costs can vary, but often include medical bills, prescriptions, physical therapy and other rehabilitative costs as well as lost wages. Compensation to cover these costs is generally available through the workers' compensation system.

Workers' compensation for Illinois prison guards questioned

It was recently reported that more than 26,000 claims for workers' compensation were filed for Illinois state employees between 2007 and 2010. These claims resulted in payment by the state of $295 million in workers' compensation benefits. Some of these claims -- though certainly not all -- were made by corrections workers for carpal tunnel syndrome.
