You have a right to know and understand the Indiana Social Security Disability and Indiana Worker’s Compensation claims process
As your lawyers, we take the burden of phone calls and paper work off your shoulders. We complete the paperwork requirements on your behalf. We understand the importance of getting the paper work right. We understand how difficult it can sometimes be. As your lawyers, we do the research and the leg work, while keeping you informed throughout the process on your social security disability or worker's compensation claim. We also understand the interaction between social security disability and Indiana worker's compensation and how the one can impact on the other. Our concentration of practice in these two areas of law gives us the tools to work for you, so as to maximize benefits under both social security disability and worker's compensation.
We know and fully understand how Indiana worker's compensation laws favor the employer and how the federal system makes it difficult to qualify for social security disability benefits. We know and fully understand how devastating a work injury and how overwhelming a social security disability claim can be. We will work our best to insure that you are treated as fairly and completely as the law allows. We are experienced lawyers.
You have a right to a lawyer and fair payment for services rendered
Bottom line, you don’t pay unless we win your Indiana social security disability, SSI, or Indiana worker's compensation claim. When you work with us, there are no high hourly rates and no filing fees. Our fees are earned by winning your claim and getting you benefits.
You have a right to an uncomplicated lawyer-client relationship
Many of our clients experience serious health problems due to a work injury, other injury, or illness. We understand that travel (even for shorter distances) can be a burden. That is why we will work with you by telephone on your social security disability, SSI, or Indiana worker's compensation claim. Of course, if you prefer to meet face to face, an appointment will be made for your visit.
