Insurance Companies Are in Business to Make Money—Not Pay Settlements

July 26, 2017

Despite their catchy slogans and viral advertisements, insurance companies rarely have the best interests of the people who need them the most at heart. Big insurers generate huge profits year after year, and those profits often come at the expense of people who need settlements and payouts after suffering serious injuries or developing severe illnesses.

When you file a claim with your insurance provider, its teams of adjusters will begin looking for ways to reduce or even deny your claim and potential settlement offer. Adjusters have many tricks to accomplish this, including:

  • Using your own words against you
  • Disqualifying your claim due to minor paperwork errors
  • Offering low-ball settlement offers in the hopes that you’ll accept
  • Giving you the runaround and counting on you to give up

In many cases, the odds are stacked against ordinary people like you who were hurt by someone else’s negligence. Getting an experienced Indiana personal injury lawyer on your side can help level the playing field. When you set up a free consultation with our legal team, you’ll get personalized attention and a commitment to success. Let us get started on your claim today.

Nursing Home Abuse? Don’t Wait to Get Help.

July 12, 2017

Even the best nursing home facilities can be guilty of abuse or neglect. All it takes is one irresponsible or negligent employee to put the well-being of residents at risk. And when that occurs, the results can be devastating.

Nursing home abuse and neglect comes in a variety of forms. It’s important that you recognize signs of abuse early to ensure your loved one’s safety. Some common signs of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • pale complexion
  • poor hygiene
  • bruises or broken bones
  • malnutrition
  • changes in mental or emotional stability
  • anxiety or depression
  • unauthorized changes to medication
  • offensive odors

If you suspect your aging loved one has been the victim of nursing home abuse or neglect, the first thing you should do is get them to safety. Do this immediately. The sooner you get your loved one out of harm’s way, the better. Their life could depend on what you do next.

Once their safety has been secured, call an Indiana nursing home abuse attorney at Stewart & Stewart. We know your loved one’s rights and will do everything within our power to protect them. You don’t have the luxury of time in this situation. Contact us today.

Workplace Injury? Don’t Settle for Less.

July 06, 2017

In theory, workers’ compensation insurance should cover injured workers in Indiana in the event of a workplace accident. However, “cover” means different things to different people. To the insurance company, that means paying out as little as possible for medical and other expenses. To us, it means fully compensating injured workers for every expense related to their injuries, including current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

Many injured workers in Indiana don’t know that they can negotiate with the insurance company around their workers’ compensation claim. That’s why so many take less than they deserve, putting themselves and their families in a tough financial position. An experienced Indiana workers’ compensation attorney can help you negotiate with the insurance company for all the benefits you deserve, not just what they’re willing to pay. The first step is giving us a call for a free consultation. We’ll discreetly review your case at no cost or obligation. If we feel we can help, we’ll do everything within our power to get you benefits as quickly as possible.

If you’ve been injured on the job, your workers’ compensation claim is far too important to your family’s future for you to try and go it alone. Contact us today for your free consultation. Let our Indiana workers’ compensation attorneys put their experience to work for you.
