Have you been injured on the job? Do you need medical treatment for an injury sustained at work and your employer won’t pay for it? Do you have a permanent injury and don’t know whether to accept the insurance company’s settlement offer? Do you have a family member or loved one who was killed or seriously injured while on the job? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should speak with an attorney immediately to discuss your legal rights and options. I am experienced in handling worker’s compensation claims in Indiana and will guide you through the process, from filing the Application for Adjustment of Claim, to negotiating a settlement with the insurance company, or taking your case to a Final Hearing. The Workers Compensation Board has exclusive jurisdiction to hear all claims for personal injury or death arising out of and in the course of employment. If the terms “MMI”, “PPI” and “TTD” mean nothing to you, you should contact my office and I would be happy to speak with you about your situation. Don’t allow a lack of knowledge about this specific area of the law prevent you from receiving the workers compensation benefits you deserve. Call today!
Work-Related Injuries – More Costly Than You Might Think
Time off work and lost wages add to the costs of a work-related injury, and often the settlements you receive are not sufficient to cover all of this. Sometimes, when you are focused on recovery, it’s easy to overlook all of the details to be adequately compensated. Not only do you need overage for your current medical bills, but future therapies, lost wages and even emotional pain and suffering need to be considered. If you feel that you need more compensation to get back on your feet, or are dealing with the realities of a life-altering injury that happened at work, a skilled worker’s compensation attorney can help.
I am experienced in handling worker’s compensation claims in Indiana, and am here to guide you through the process. All claims have to go through the Workers Compensation Board, which has exclusive jurisdiction for these types of cases. I have worked with these groups directly, and understand all of the terminology and ins and outs of the process.
If you are facing the realities of a work-related injury or accident, help is available. The law gives you the right to seek compensation from your employer and the employer’s worker’s compensation insurance. Don’t let lack of understanding or knowledge about this unique aspect of law keep you from getting the compensation you are legally entitled to. Contact me today to discuss the details of your case.
