Worker’s Compensation Law
Getting injured at work can have a huge impact on your life. People often don’t realize how frustrating the Worker’s Compensation system in Indiana can be until they have had an encounter with it. There are a lot of complexities to dealing with the worker’s compensation system between coordinating doctor’s appointments, calculating temporary total disability payments, and figuring out what a permanent injury may be worth. Often a worker’s compensation case can also contain a third party that you may or may not be able to seek payment from after your worker’s compensation case is settled. Unfortunately, there are not a lot of attorneys that focus on worker’s compensation law in Indianapolis for a variety of reasons. It is imperative that you find an attorney that knows the ins and outs of the worker’s compensation system and is familiar with these types of cases. If you have been injured at work, please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to assist you in a worker’s compensation case in Indiana.
