If you have been injured on the job, workers’ compensation benefits can help protect you from the potentially devastating costs of a work-related injury. Hiring an attorney to assist you with your workers’ compensation claim can help ensure you don’t lose out on the benefits to which you might be entitled.
You should speak to an attorney if:
- You are preparing to file. The law does not require an employer to inform employees how to maximize their recovery. An attorney can advocate on your behalf and ensure that you are not denied the compensation that you deserve.
- Your claim was denied. An attorney can help guide you through the appeals process which usually includes filing formal paperwork, gathering evidence, and presenting your case at a hearing.
- You did not receive sufficient compensation. An attorney can explain the workers’ compensation benefits to which you should be entitled, file an appeal on your behalf, and build a case to show why you deserve a larger settlement.
If your claim has been denied, if you feel that you have been undercompensated, or if you believe that your rights under the Indiana workers’ compensation law have been violated, we may be able to help. Please call Harper & Harper for a free initial consultation.
