Get The Benefits You Are Entitled To After An Injury On The Job
A workplace injury may be caused by a traumatic event or repetitive stress and strain over time. In either case, you have a right to medical care through workers’ compensation, followed by ongoing treatments and therapy. You may need to take extended time off work. Missing wages and worrying about whether you will keep your job can add to the difficulties brought on by the injury.
Don’t risk missing deadlines or having your workers’ compensation claim denied or undervalued. Consult with a workers’ compensation attorney at Golitko & Daly, P.C. in Indianapolis, Kokomo or Bloomington. We can help ensure that you receive all benefits that you are entitled to and advise you on employment issues.
Understanding Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation is mandated by the government for most employers and employees. However, you will be interacting with your employer and/or its insurer as you make claims for benefits. A skilled workers’ compensation attorney can advise you at every step and protect your right to benefits, including:
- Medical care
- Medications and medical equipment
- Compensation for lost wages
- Compensation for permanent impairments
If the workers’ compensation insurer denies or undervalues your claim, or insists that you are ready to return to work before you really are, a lawyer on your side can be critical to your recovery. In case of a dispute over benefits, you may seek relief through Indiana’s Workers’ Compensation Board, the Court of Appeals or the Supreme Court of Indiana.
