In Illinois, you get to choose your own doctor. You are entitled to medical treatment, paid time off of work while you recover (TTD), payment for the difference between what you used to earn and what you make now (TPD), and a lump sum after you return to work (PTD). If your doctor says you cannot return to work at all, you may be entitled to PTD (weekly payments for life). The Illinois worker’s compensation system is much friendlier to workers than that of Missouri.
