New Albany Workers' Compensation
Accidents don’t discriminate, and even those who work in safe environments can find themselves injured and unable to work. While your pain may be significant, seemingly endless medical bills and lost wages can quickly become more agonizing than the accident itself.
Depending on the severity, your injury can leave you with life-long consequences and a diminished future earning capacity. No one should have to suffer for simply completing their occupational duties; you deserve to be compensated for your pain.
If you or a loved one have sustained an on-the-job injury, and the insurance company has unjustly denied your workers’ compensation claim, we understand and are here to help. Morgan & Morgan has spent over 3 decades fighting For The People, Not The Powerful, and we’re eager to include you in our success.

What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
If you’ve sustained an injury while performing your job, you deserve to be compensated for the pain you’ve endured. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will ensure your case is as strong as possible and fight tirelessly for the restitution you’re entitled to.
Here are some situations that qualify for workers’ compensation benefits:
- Head injuries (concussions, major brain injuries)
- Other physical injuries (broken bones, torn muscles/ligaments, herniated discs)
- Occupational afflictions (mesothelioma, sight/hearing loss)
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
The Indiana Workers’ Compensation Board allows injured workers to recover the following benefits:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Disability benefits (temporary or permanent depending on your injuries)
- Funeral expenses (in the unfortunate case of wrongful death)
Although your situation could qualify for benefits, your employer could be interfering with your claim. This kind of unethical behavior is unacceptable by any means, and we want to help make sure they don’t get away with it.
If you find yourself in a situation like this, contact our New Albany office for more information.
How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?
A denied claim doesn’t necessarily mean you’re ineligible for benefits. Insurance companies and corrupt employers have been known to utilize dishonest business practices, such as claiming your injury didn’t occur while working, to prevent injured workers from receiving the compensation they’re entitled to.
To fight back, you have to appeal the verdict. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can guide you through the appeals process and give your case the best possible outcome.
But don’t wait: in Indiana, you’re allowed up to 2 years after the date of the injury to file an appeal. While this may seem like it’s the distant future, it’s important to act quickly.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
Although finding proficient representation may seem like a complicated task, we’ve made it easy. Our team works on a contingency, meaning we’re only paid if we win your case. We take our fee from the favorable settlement or jury award so you never have to worry about accruing another expense after your accident.
