Evansville Workers' Compensation

An on-the-job accident can limit your ability to perform basic tasks and severely damage your financial security. If a workplace accident is preventing you from earning a paycheck, workers’ compensation may be able to help you get back on your feet.

However, many workers’ compensation claims are initially denied by the insurance company. They don’t understand how important compensation can be after an injury and will deny your claim to avoid having to pay the compensation you’re entitled to. This immoral behavior is unacceptable by any means, and it’s time to fight back.

You need someone who will advocate for you while you recover, and that’s our specialty.

How Does Workers’ Compensation Work?

Workers’ compensation was created to provide financial assistance to those who are unable to work due to an on-the-job injury. After your accident, you should report your claim to your employer as soon as possible. Indiana allows up to 30 days to report your injury, but acting quickly can be beneficial for future legal proceedings.

Almost any injury that occurs while working can qualify for workers’ compensation, but here are a few common examples:

  • Head/neck injuries
  • Occupational conditions (Mesothelioma, hearing/sight loss)
  • Burns (chemical and heat)
  • Repetitive motion/aggravation injuries
  • Injuries to limbs or extremities

What Does Workers’ Compensation Cover?

Indiana allows injured workers to recover the following assets:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses (including prescription medications)
  • Permanent/partial disability benefits (depending on the severity of your injury)

The insurance company might reach out to you with an initial settlement offer. While this may look appealing, it’s important to retain a trusted attorney to determine if the offer accurately reflects the compensation amount you deserve. Our specialized attorneys can review their offer and prevent a third party from devaluing your injuries.

How Can I Appeal?

You can appeal your denied claim by filing an Application for Adjustment of Claim to Indiana’s Workers’ Compensation Board. This process can be complicated, so it’s recommended to retain an experienced attorney to assist you. Our team can guide you every step of the way and ensure your case is as strong as possible when we enter the courtroom.

Indiana allows up to 2 years from the date of your injury to file an appeal. This may seem to be in the distant future, but filing sooner rather than later will give you a higher chance of receiving your full and fair compensation.
