Workers’ Compensation Attorneys In Your Area

Switch English/Spanish

Los empleados que se lastiman en el trabajo tienen derecho a una indemnización adecuada. Lamentablemente, muchos empleadores no se preocupan por sus empleados, sino que se preocupan por sus intereses y responden fríamente a los reclamos por lesiones laborales con burocracia, trabas y agresividad. Los trabajadores en el área del noroeste de Indiana y Chicago nunca deben dar por sentado que contarán con indemnización laboral sin consultar con su abogado. Esto es cierto incluso si el jefe dice que no es necesario un abogado, si el abogado de la empresa dice que todo está cubierto o si los compañeros de trabajo advierten a la víctima lesionada que no debería hacer demasiado aspaviento. Tener un abogado especializado en indemnizaciones laborales de su lado siempre es importante, pero sobre todo cuando se enfrenta a situaciones como las siguientes:

  1. La compañía de seguros se niega a indemnizarlo.
  2. Su jefe niega que usted haya resultado herido en el trabajo.
  3. Se le niega tratamiento médico.
  4. No se cumple lo que se le había prometido en términos de salario, cobertura médica, etc.

Es muy importante contar con un abogado especializado en indemnización laboral al verse en situaciones extremas como las siguientes después de haber sufrido una lesión en el trabajo:

  1. Necesita dinero y no recibe ingresos.
  2. Su empleador no tiene seguro de indemnización.
  3. Alguien que no sea su empleador lo dañó y provocó su accidente.

Workers Compensation Attorney Serving Merrillville, IN

Also serving Chicago, Valparaiso, IN, and Surrounding Areas

Employees who are hurt while working on the job are owed due compensation under the law. Unfortunately, some employers are less concerned about their employees’ welfare than they are about their bottom lines. While most employers are intent on doing what’s right, there are still companies that make life even more difficult for workers injured on the job using red tape, roadblocks and even seeking retribution against injured employees.

Workers in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland area should never assume that workers’ compensation will take care of them without checking with their personal lawyer. This is true even if the boss says an attorney isn’t needed; if the company lawyer says everything’s covered; or if fellow employees warn the injury victim that he or she should not do anything to rock the boat.

Common Workers’ Compensation Injuries

There are many ways someone can be hurt on the job. Certain types of workplace injuries tend to occur more frequently than others. Those include:

  • Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injuries
  • Overexertion
  • Transportation injuries
  • Accidents involving workplace machinery or equipment
  • Being struck by an object

Workplace injuries can be serious; workers’ compensation laws are designed to help alleviate the financial stress that can come with becoming injured while performing job duties.

Understanding What Benefits May Be Available

Specific compensation will depend on the circumstances of your injury. However, in general terms, workers’ compensation benefits include payments for medical expenses, lost wages, permanent disability and more.

Medical Care

Required tests and medical treatment after a workplace injury can add up quickly. Workers with covered injuries should not have to pay their own medical expenses.

Lost Wages

If your injury keeps you from working, you may be entitled to compensation under workers’ compensation laws. This can help you and your family stay on top of your financial obligations when you are away from work temporarily.

Long-Term Disability

Sometimes, workplace injuries result in long-term disability, disfigurement, loss of limbs and other significant impairments. Initial settlement offers are often insufficient to account for the needs long-term disability can bring.

Other Benefits

Other benefits include reimbursement for mileage for medical appointments, and death benefits for families of workers who were killed as the result of workplace injuries.

How a Workers’ Compensation Attorney Can Help

Having an Illinois workers’ compensation attorney or an Indiana worker’s compensation lawyer on your side is always important, but especially when you face situations such as:

  1. The insurance company denies benefits to you;
  2. Your boss denies that you were hurt at work and injured while on the job;
  3. You go for medical treatment and are refused medical care; or
  4. You’re not seeing what was promised to you — wages, medical coverage, etc.

It is critically important to have a workers’ compensation lawyer if you are facing extreme situations after being hurt at work and you are suffering from an on-the-job injury.

Common circumstances include the following:

  1. You need money and have no income coming in;
  2. Your employer does not carry compensation insurance; or
  3. Someone other than your employer hurt you and caused your accident.
