WE WROTE THE BOOK ON WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

When looking for representation, we think you would do well to hire the firm who wrote the book.  The workplace injury attorneys 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. We also frequently speak at professional seminars on issues related to workers’ compensation and workplace injury claims in Indiana.

We believe our clients benefit from our deep understanding of the complex issues that frequently arise in the course of a workplace injury claim. Our experience equips us well to take on a variety of matters, such as:

Issues related to permanent total disability or permanent partial impairment

Disability and impairment are among the most complex and contested matters in workers compensation claims. Our lawyers have a track record of securing full and fair compensation for disabled and impaired workers.

Product liability claims

If you were injured on the job because of a faulty piece of equipment, our work injury lawyers can investigate the cause and seek additional damages for your pain, suffering and loss of wages.

Independent medical examinations

Do you think the workers’ compensation doctor is downplaying the extent of your injuries? You may be able to get a more accurate assessment performed by an independent physician.

Independent medical examinations

The workplace injury lawyers at Klezmer Maudlin have decades of experience appealing wrongfully denied claims on behalf of our clients. Let us review your situation and advise you about your legal options.

Third-party claims

Did you know that parties other than your employer could potentially be liable for your work injuries in a third-party claim? For example, if you got hurt at work because a ladder broke, you may be entitled to additional compensation from the ladder’s manufacturer.

Disputes over future medical benefits

Many workplace injuries leave victims facing a lifetime of medical treatments and rehabilitation. We frequently work with medical experts, life-care planners and financial experts to further claims for future medical benefits.

Wage disputes

The workers’ comp system provides for partial wage replacement due to a work-related injury. However, there are often disputes about how much the worker was making and how this sum should be calculated.

Physician disputes

Do you disagree with your doctor’s diagnosis or prescribed course of treatment for your work-related injury? You may be able to seek a second opinion or an alternate treatment plan. Our lawyers can help.

Occupational disease claims

Workers’ comp covers more than just one-time “accidents.” Benefits may also be available for diseases and conditions caused by your employment, such as exposure to chemicals, molds and other hazardous substances in the workplace, stress fractures and many others.
