If you are injured on the job, the first thing you need to do is make sure that you report your injury to your immediate supervisor. A work injury is governed by the Illinois Worker’s Compensation Act, and the Worker’s Compensation Act requires you to put your employer on notice. Once you have put your employer on notice, then you should contact an attorney.
