    You can't get unemployment ins. benefits unless you are ready, willing & able to work (looking for work).

    one more question.
    Since i no longer receive WC benefits and i know that i am unable to work, could i now apply for Unemployment benefits???? or should i hold off until i get the second opinion as such results could reinforce WC???

    Yes, the employer will still be responsible for medical expenses related to your claim.

    Laid-off after work related injury Illinois

    Late December of 08' I slipped and fell at work. i went through the process with Workers Comp and received benefits, but on January 29th i was laid-off from my work where this accident happened. although i was laid off, i continued to receive WC benefits until three weeks ago because the Doctor said i was well enough to return to work full duty. I disagree with his opinion as i am still in pain. I'm curruntly in the process of setting up an apointment with a different doctor for a second opinion.
    My question is, Will my ex-employer's insurance/WC be responsible for any medical expenses incurred???
    Even after WC's doctors have released me on full duty even though i know that i am not and still in pain??? your help is much appreciated.
