You’ve been injured on the job. Now what? Well, you have a couple options. First, you can file your workers’ compensation claim with your employer and take whatever the insurance company decides to pay you. That amount may be what you need to fully recover, but in our experience, it’s usually not. And once you sign with the insurance company, it can be extremely difficult to get them to pay anything else to make up the difference.
The second option is to call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. At Stewart & Stewart, we know the workers’ compensation laws and your rights as an injured worker. We’ll work with your employer and their insurance company to negotiate the full amount we feel you and your family should receive for your injuries. That may include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. If your injuries warrant long-term benefits, we’ll fight for those too.
Given those options, we recommend you go with a lawyer. You only get one chance to get your workers’ comp claim right, so call the experienced Indiana workers’ comp attorneys at Stewart & Stewart today for your free, no obligation consultation. You better believe it’s worth a call. Contact us today.
