Workers' Compensation

Change of Venue: Downstate Delaware Industrial Accident Board Moves to Dover










Big doings in Slower Lower……which is what we Northerners affectionately call our lower two counties, also sometimes known as “below the canal.”  The current Kent/Sussex County downstate Industrial Accident Board location in Milford is closing and downstate cases will now be heard at a new location:

Blue Hen Corporate Center
655 South Bay Road, Suite 2H
Dover, DE 19901

All phone/fax numbers for the office will remain the same. The Office of Workers' Comp will be closed on January 25th and January 26th for the move, and will resume operations on Wednesday January 27, 2016.

During the 2 days of the move, anyone needing assistance can contact the Department of Labor Wilmington office at (302) 761-8200.

I would call this an excellent development for those of us practicing in the northern two counties.  Heck, the shopping is better as are the restaurant options.  But I have to say, I am going to miss Milford and this is weighing on my heart big time…….  No longer will I pass that feral cat colony on Route 1 at the Milford exit.  Now if I want to visit with the ferals and leave a 10 pound bag of food, I am going to have to either make a special trip or find a way to the beach a bit more often. Maybe I will take up outlet shopping?

As the saying goes, “Time with a cat is never wasted.”  Wish I could say the same about the Board on Motion Day.

Irreverently yours,
