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.

    QUINCY -- As each customer passed by the all-terrain wheelchair parked in the main aisle Thursday inside GameMasters, they stopped and lingered. They leaned on the arms, testing the wheelchair's shocks and sturdiness. They pushed it to see how the tank-like tracks moved. A couple of them even sat in it.

    QUINCY -- Call it the calm before the storm. The next storm, that is. The weekend weather forecast anticipates a break in the cold weather, with temperatures reaching into the 50s. After that, probably a week of rainy weather mixed with some temperatures in the 40s and 30s is headed our way.

    As the number of drunken driving cases reaching her desk continued to grow, Jennifer Cifaldi decided something needed to be done to stem the tide. Cifaldi, an assistant state's attorney who handles traffic offenses, went to Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard. The result was the institution of a DUI search warrant program. Starting in 2008, the county began to get search warrants for those suspected of DUI who refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test.
