Top Illinois agencies with workers' compensation claims

Posted: Updated:

With Menard Correctional Center accounting for nearly 40 percent of the total, the Illinois Department of Corrections topped state agencies with the most injury-impairment benefits paid to workers from 2007 through 2010, according to an Associated Press analysis of state records. This chart shows total benefits in awards or settlements, the number of claims made, the number of claims on which awards were made, and the average award. It does not include awards totaling about $5.2 million given to state workers whose agency the AP could not identify from the data. Some claims were still pending at the end of the period.
