Law Firm in Wheaton, IL. Dedicated to clients who have been injured in the workplace
If you have been hurt at work, you have more than just medical issues to deal with. In addition to the medical issues, you have to worry about whether you will be able to work again, whether your employer and its insurance company will try to deny your claim, and whether you will ever reach full strength again. You need a lawyer who knows the workers' compensation system and who genuinely cares about what you are going through.
I have been serving clients in Wheaton, Illinois, from The Law Offices of Christine M. Ory, P.C. for five years, but I have been in the workers' compensation field since 1975. In that time, I have seen many different types of situations. I can help you get the compensation you need.
There are a few things that set me apart as a workers' compensation attorney:
-Local: I was born and raised in Naperville, earned my education in Naperville and
-Du Page County, and I am a member of the Illinois Bar Association.
-Work experience: I worked my way through college and law school, working during the day and taking classes at night. Many of my clients are taking a similar path, and they appreciate the fact that I can relate to and empathize with their situations.
-Workers' compensation experience: I have 35 years of experience in the workers' compensation field. This includes several years working as a claims adjuster. This unique experience gives me a better understanding of the insurance companies' approaches to workers' compensation cases.
-Genuine care for my clients: My clients appreciate the way I take them through the process of workers' compensation, helping them every step of the way. I know that this can be a confusing process and I think my main role is to be a helper. I can handle all of the legal issues you are facing and I will advocate effectively for you.

Wheaton Attorney Handling All Aspects of Workers' Compensation
If you are like most people injured at work, you are probably just as concerned about the legal aspects of getting the compensation you need as you are about the injuries themselves. You need a Wheaton attorney who can help you through the complicated legal process of workers' compensation.
I have been in the workers' compensation field for 35 years. At The Law Offices of Christine M. Ory, P.C., I have the experience you need to help you through the workers' compensation process. I work with my clients on a personal level, walking them through the process while working diligently to get them the money they need to recover from work-related injuries.
I can help you with many different aspects of your workers' compensation claim:
-Workers' compensation process: One of the most difficult things for many of my clients has been the process itself, which can be quite complicated. As a workers' compensation attorney for nearly 20 years, I have the experience to walk you through this complicated process, helping you every step of the way.
-Workplace injury accidents: There are many different types of work-related injuries that could lead to a workers' compensation claim, including fall injuries, head injuries and occupational diseases.
-Repetitive injury accidents: Repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome are common for people working in offices. At more labor-oriented jobs, many people suffer from lifting injuries from repetitive back strain.
-Traveling employee injuries: There is an extra layer of complexity when employees suffer injuries while off the workplace campus.
-Aggravation of pre-existing injuries: It is common for a worker to get an old injury re-aggravated, rather than suffering a whole new injury. I can help get you compensation for aggravated injuries.
-Reduction of earning capacity injuries: A problem arises in the workers' compensation process when you are still able to work after an injury, but because of the injury you are no longer able to earn as much.
-Auto accidents and premises liability: I have the resources you need if you have been hurt in a car accident or if you have gotten hurt on someone else's property.
