Chemical Exposure in Illinois
#1
Hi. I was exposed to some pool chemicals at work that caused a reaction and made me sick. I was out a few days, and am now back to work. Employer has filed everything with wc, and all appears ok at this point. My quesytion is this. I am concerned what might happen if there was longer term damage that does not show for months or years. What happens if I get sick from this in the future? Will the same claim cover it? Or am I screwed if that happens?

Thanks. Am I reading it correctly that the limit is 3 years? It says the claim can be closed after that period.

Where exactly did you read that there is a three year limit?
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.

In most cases, the employee must file a claim within three years after
an injury, death, or disablement from an occupational disease, or
within two years of the last payment of TTD or a medical bill,
whichever is later.
