Since he first began practicing law over twelve years ago, Jason Carroll has focused his practice on protecting the rights of injured workers before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. Today, nearly one-hundred-percent of his practice is dedicated to representing injured workers. He has successfully litigated hundreds of cases involving back injuries, shoulder injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, repetitive trauma, and exposure. Jason has tried over one-hundred cases at the Commission and has also pursued and won appeals before the Commission, Circuit Courts and the Illinois Appellate Court.
Much of his practice involves representing union workers in the automotive field who are injured on the job. He has fought and successfully litigated countless cases against large corporations. He is not afraid to stand up to big insurance companies and fight for the rights of his clients. He has the background, knowledge and experience necessary to reach the best possible resolution of their claims.
Jason was raised in Northwest Indiana just outside of Chicago. He was raised to understand what a fair work environment can do to help a family. But he also knows what struggles can occur when an employer does not treat its employees fairly. His father was a proud union machinist and his mother has been teaching as long as he can remember. Having grown up in a union household, he does not take for granted the victories unions have fought for and won for their workers. He strives to continue that fight alongside not only his union clients but his non-union clients alike.
He obtained his Bachelor of Arts from Franklin College of Indiana where he graduated with a double major in Political Science and American Studies. After graduation, he pursued and earned his Juris Doctor from Loyola University Chicago School of Law. He is admitted to the Illinois State Bar and to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. He is a member of the Chicago Bar Association and the Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Association.
When he is not representing his clients before the Commission, Jason enjoys watching the White Sox and Blackhawks, and also enjoys working out and cooking in his spare time.
