Law firm and attorney registration for CompFile, the IWCC's new e-filing system for managing workers' compensation cases, is scheduled to begin February 2020!
Each law firm will designate one or more "Law Firm Administrators" who will manage that firm's overall account, and assist with registering the firm's attorneys. Solo practitioners will also designate an administrator, or can serve in that capacity themselves. Once the administrator sets up the firm, they will begin the process of getting attorney accounts set up. No special equipment or downloads are needed – CompFile is a cloud-based system, accessed via the internet. A current, updated version of Google Chrome will be a reliable way to access CompFile, but any modern web browser should work. Also, for maximum performance, ensure your computer's operating system is up to date.
