Fighting For Your Rights After A Workplace Injury
The attorneys at Theisen & Associates help injured workers get the income, medical care and other benefits they need from workers’ compensation. Our experienced lawyers in Fort Wayne, Indiana, represent workers who suffer injuries during the course and scope of their employment.
These injuries could be to your back, wrist, knee, spine, neck or shoulder, just to name a few examples. We also help workers with repetitive stress injuries that occur over the course of time from performing the same tasks on a regular basis. Additionally, we help workers who suffer crush injuries or limb amputations, as well as workers who sustain lung damage from toxic exposures.
Can I Sue My Employer?
While you generally can’t sue your employer for a workplace injury, you may have the right to sue any third party who is responsible for your injury. Third parties include:
- Equipment manufacturers
- Property owners
- Other drivers in motor vehicle accidents
In some cases, you may have two claims: a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury claim. We can help you fight for the maximum compensation from all sources.
Unfortunately, injury cases are not always as straightforward as they should be. You could face a multitude of issues on the job. For instance, your employer may see you as an expense that needs to be controlled rather than an employee who needs help. Will they try to fire you to get rid of that expense? Our lawyers stand by to assist you if you face issues such as retaliation or wrongful termination for filing a workers’ comp claim.
We will protect your rights as an employee throughout the claims process. Our attorneys can inform you of your rights and make sure you understand all available options when it comes to a workers’ compensation claim.
Simply put, if you got injured on the job, our experienced legal team can help you. Before you sign any agreements with the company’s insurance carrier, contact us to insure your rights.
