Can I challenge my urine drug test after my workplace accident?

Illinois provides workers' compensation protection for employees who are injured at work. Generally, this works on a "no-fault" insurance scheme. Without getting too technical, the current system bars injured workers from suing their employers and their insurers directly for their injuries. In exchange for that liability protection, the employee is not required to prove fault for a workplace accident in order to receive certain medical benefits and other compensation.
