Legal Services For Workers’ Compensation Injuries in Lake County
If you’ve been injured on the job, your health, career, and future could be at stake. Most Indiana businesses carry workers’ compensation insurance, also known as workers comp, so as an employee, you’re “covered” from your first day at a job. If you’re injured there, workers’ compensation provides compensation for medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, and lost income. Obtain the help you need now if you’ve been injured at work and you’re entitled to these benefits. Call the Merrillville law office of experienced Indiana workers’ compensation attorney Julie R. Glade. Ms. Glade represents employees who have become victims of workplace accidents in Merrillville, Gary, Valparaiso, Cedar Lake, Hebron, and across northwest Indiana.
Accidents Can Happen Anywhere
Accidents happen in every job setting: factories, offices, retail stores, restaurants, and anywhere else people earn a living. The most serious injuries often happen – but aren’t limited to – construction sites and manufacturing jobs. Workplace accidents can result in spinal and back injuries, blindness, amputation, breathing trouble, hearing loss, mesothelioma, burns, paralysis, head and brain injuries, and sometimes death. Injured workers are sometimes permanently disabled, and the employee repayment process is often baffling without help from a good Lake County workers’ compensation attorney. With her background as a registered nurse, Lake County personal injury and workers’ compensation attorney Julie Glade is exceptionally qualified to advise and represent injury victims.
Get The Help You Need
Your right to workers’ compensation benefits will probably be disputed by your employer or your employer’s insurance company. Insurers typically hope that you don’t know how to prove your eligibility for benefits. Workers’ compensation lawyers like Julie Glade are experienced in fighting these battles and winning every cent of the compensation her clients deserve. If your workplace accident was caused by a third party’s negligence, you may be entitled to file a personal injury claim outside of the workers’ compensation system, but you will have to be able to prove liability. Personal injury claims can provide damages that will exceed the benefits from workers’ compensation alone. However, you probably won’t collect any damages without help from an experienced Lake County workers’ compensation attorney who understands and knows the law and the system. That attorney is Julie R. Glade.
