We Wrote The Book On Worker’s Compensation
When looking for representation, we think you would do well to hire the firm who wrote the book. The workers compensation lawyers at Klezmer Maudlin, PC, authored the Workers’ Compensation Practice Manual, which serves as a resource for all issues related to the administration and practice of workers’ compensation law in Indiana. Our indianapolis personal injury lawyers also frequently speak at professional seminars on issues related to workers’ compensation and workplace injury claims in Indiana.
Our Lawyers Get Results
Attorneys Randy Klezmer and Nathan Maudlin are not typical workers compensation and construction accident lawyers, and Klezmer Maudlin, PC, is not an average law firm. The attorneys and the firm they formed concentrate on one thing: helping injured workers secure the compensation they need to move forward with their lives. Because of our firm’s tight focus on workplace injury and construction accident claims, our attorneys have developed a deep understanding of the law, the process and what it takes to secure maximum compensation for our clients from all available sources.

Why do I need an attorney?
If your employer denies your claim or does not pay your benefits it is important to get a workers’ compensation attorney. It costs nothing to hire an attorney upfront at Klezmer Maudlin. We will only receive payment if you recover additional money. If you would like a fair settlement for your injuries, it is important that you contact an attorney.
Do I have a workers’ compensation or personal injury case?
The main question to ask when deciding whether you should file a workers’ compensation claim or personal injury claim is “Whose fault was it?”
If the injury was in some part your fault while performing your work duties, you should file a workers’ comp claim. In a workers’ comp case, you do not have to prove the fault of an employer, co-worker, or other party. You are still entitled to receive benefits even if the injury was, in some part, your fault.
If the injury was due to the negligence of an employer, co-worker, or third party, you may have a personal injury case. Unlike workers’ compensation claims, you must prove that another party was at fault for your injury.
What am I entitled to for my personal injury claim?
In both workers’ compensation and personal injury claims you are entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and loss of future earning capacity. In a personal injury case, however, you are also entitled to compensation for pain and suffering resulting from the injury.
