If you have been hurt on the job or due to your employment, contact our office to get your questions answered.
Workplace injuries can cause serious physical and financial harm. Worker Compensation Laws are complicated. Without an effective attorney to protect your rights, you might not be able to recover the benefits you are entitled to. Our Indianapolis firm, Bench Law Office, represents victims of job-related accidents in workers’ compensation matters and other litigation when appropriate. Attorney Stuart Bench has over 35 years of experience challenging insurance companies on clients’ behalf. We are always available to answer your questions, and we work on a contingency basis, so we do not get paid unless you are compensated. If you have suffered an injury or illness at work, prompt action is essential in securing the benefits you deserve. We will battle your employer to obtain payment for medical costs, lost wages and other eligible expenses.
Over more than three decades, we have built a reputation throughout Indiana for providing effective representation in negotiations with insurers and before the Worker’s Compensation Board of Indiana. Our office will advise you on relevant issues including:
- Claim disputes — Indiana employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and compensation for medical costs and lost wages is required to be paid from that insurance regardless of whether the employer is at fault. However, insurers sometimes claim that they are not responsible for making payments because the injury did not occur at work or resulted from improper conduct. When this occurs, our firm will forcefully present your case.
- Appeals — If a decision by the Worker’s Compensation Board does not compensate you fairly, we will file a thorough appeal on your behalf within the required 30-day period.
- Additional benefits and claims — In addition to wages and treatment costs, you might be able to receive payments for the rehabilitation and training you need to get back to work. Also, in some workplace accidents, such as vehicle crashes, you might also have legal claim for an injury suit against a third party. Our firm will identify each liable party and seek to hold them accountable.
Quick action is necessary to get the payments you deserve in a workers’ comp claim. We can explain the process during a free initial consultation.
