How Long Do I Have to Report a Work Injury to My Employer?

Last updated 6 years ago

Under Illinois workers' compensation law, injured workers are required to report all accidents to their employers within 45 days from the date of the accident. A work accident must be reported to someone in the company who has a position of authority such as a foreman, company nurse, or personnel manager. However, we advise you to report any injury immediately.  Rarely is there a dispute about when an employee reports an injury, but it does come up on occasion.  McCready, Garcia & Leet have handled thousands of workers' compensation cases, including those in which the employer alleges lack of timely notice.  To discuss a work injury, please call us for a free consultation at (773) 779-9885.
