If you work in Illinois, it will be important for you to have an understanding of how the state's workers' compensation program operates. Most people never expect to become ill due to a work-related situation or environment or to get hurt at work but this can and does happen. Being prepared and informed is important when it comes time to file a claim for benefits.
As an Illinois resident, you probably come into contact with dogs on a daily basis even if you do not have a pet of your own. You may interact with dogs in your neighborhood or at parks and other public places. While most domestic dogs are friendly, attacks still happen occasionally. If you experience an attack or a bite, it is important to know what to do to protect your health and your livelihood.
