Why Do You Need a Lawyer after a Workplace Injury?

Mar 21, 2018 | Workers' Compensation

Share

Getting hurt on the job can be result in serious, painful, and disabling injuries. You may be unable to go back to work for weeks or months, and when you’re not working, you’re not earning the paychecks your family depends on.

Indiana requires that almost all employers in the state carry workers’ compensation insurance, but business owners may be hesitant to confirm that injuries occurred on company property or while working. In addition, the workers’ compensation system isn’t always fair, and injured workers frequently fall through the cracks and are left with no benefits at all.

At Stewart & Stewart, we know that how difficult the process can be for injured workers and their families. That’s why having an experienced Indiana workers’ compensation lawyer on your side can make all the difference.

You can count on our legal team to:

  • Help protect you from threats or retaliation – Employers sometimes threaten workers who get hurt on the job, while others retaliate after injured employees file workers’ compensation claims. We know those tactics, and we’re always prepared for them when representing victims like you.
  • Maximize your chances of getting approved – Even the most cut-and-dry claims can get rejected by the workers’ compensation board. Having an attorney on your side means you won’t have to worry about small mistakes or oversights jeopardizing your claim, because we work hard to make sure every case we handle is complete and accurate before we submit it.

Don’t leave your future up to chance or in the hands of just any law firm. Call us today for a free consultation.
