One Firm Handling All Types of Work Injury Cases
When an injury occurs at work, there are a variety of ways to collect compensation. For example, an electrician, mason, or ironworker who falls at a job site may have a third-party liability claim, also known as a personal injury case, against the contractor who assembled the scaffolding. In addition, that same ironworker may have a workers' compensation claim against an employer. If a worker is unable to return to work, he or she may also have a disability claim.
We are prepared to help with the pursuit of all these cases within one law firm. Golitko & Daly focuses on all of these areas to provide the best representation to the client. We can help with the following types of cases:
- Construction accidents
- Spinal cord injuries
- Injuries that cause disfigurement and scarring
- Traumatic brain injuries
- On-the-job wrongful death
- OSHA and IOSHA violations
Defective Product Cases
Clients with workers' compensation claims may also have a lawsuit against an equipment manufacturer (unsafe or defective equipment) or a sub-contractor (or the general contractor) may be liable for a workplace injury. These are often referred to as product liability claims. We have experience dealing with faulty lift buckets, defective switches, and failures in guarding.
Did Your Employer Fire You After an Injury on the Job?
Indiana law protects injured workers. In addition to representing injured workers to recover payment for medical bills and wage replacement, we represent employees in employment law matters related to injuries. Workers are sometimes subjected to wrongful discharge as a result of an on-the-job injury. We can assert workers' rights in "Frampton action" cases.
