Worker’s Compensation Lawyers in Valparaiso
Northwest Indiana worker’s compensation claim lawyers on your side
Most Indiana employees who become injured on the job are eligible to receive worker’s compensation benefits. These benefits can include:
- Medical care
Weekly payments of about two thirds of your weekly wages are paid to covered employees who were injured on the job and can’t return to work for seven days or more.
Receiving the benefits you deserve is frequently a struggle. Sometimes valid worker’s compensation claims are denied. Sometimes the doctor may say you are ready to go back to work, when you are still too injured.
Helping injured workers get benefits they deserve
We will also review your case to determine whether you can pursue a third party claim against someone other than your employer to receive additional compensation. If you were injured on the job by a defective piece of machinery, for example, we could seek compensation from the machine’s manufacturer.
If your loved one has lost their life due to a workplace accident, this is a wrongful death case.
Our experienced lawyers aggressively fight for the surviving spouse or partner, children, and parents of the deceased to recover the following financial compensation:
- Damages for any personal injury to the deceased
- Anticipated earnings until the time of retirement for the deceased
- Medical bills
- Funeral costs
- Other related expenses
