Fighting For Fair Compensation For Workplace Injuries
If you were injured or disabled because of a workplace incident, it is important to talk to a lawyer about your right to workers’ compensation. At Gilmore Law Office LLC, we assist injured workers in Indiana and Illinois with initial claims, as well as with appeals if a claim has been denied.
We represent workers with on-the-job injuries, including:
- Repetitive stress and overuse injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
- Injuries resulting from falls
- Conditions resulting from exposure to hazardous substances
- Vehicle crashes in company-owned cars or trucks
You have the right to file for workers’ compensation if you have been injured at work, and you cannot be fired from your job because you applied for workers’ compensation. If you are experiencing negative treatment at work or were fired from your job after applying for workers’ compensation, it is important to speak to a lawyer to make sure your rights are protected.
What Can Workers’ Compensation Cover?
The workers’ compensation benefits available to you will depend on the nature of your injury, but benefits typically include some compensation for medical expenses and a portion of lost wages. In severe cases, workers’ compensation can also provide compensation for permanent disabilities.
