Illinois Lawyer Referrals and Legal Guidance
DUPAGE COUNTY WORKERS COMPENSATION LAWYERS
Unlike every other area of law, there are a limited number of locations in the state of Illinois for disputes involving work injury claims. There is one location in Wheaton that is located in the DuPage County Government Center at 421 N. County Farm Road.
If you get hurt on the job, you will get assigned to an Arbitrator at that location if one of three things happens:
1. You get hurt in one of the cities listed below. So even if your office is in Chicago or another state, if you are hurt in one of these cities you can pursue benefits in Illinois and will have your have your claim heard in DuPage County.
2. You were physically hired in one of the cities below, but hurt in another state. For example you could be offered a job while interviewing in Naperville, but then transfer with your company to Milwaukee. If you had a job accident in Milwaukee you could still pursue benefits in Illinois even if you haven't been here for years.
3. If your employment is principally located at one of the cities below, but you get hurt out of state, you can still seek workmans compensation benefits in IL and the Arbitrator location would be Wheaton.
As of January 2012, three arbitrators will hear disputes at the Wheaton hearing site. These arbitrators are Chicago arbitrators who are assigned to hear cases in Wheaton. Your case would get randomly assigned to one of them once an application for adjustment of claim is officially filed with the state.
The following cities have workers compensation claims that are heard in DuPage County:
DUPAGE COUNTY (WHEATON)
GLEN ELLYN HEIGHTS
OAK BROOK TERRACE
