Our attorneys specialize in worker’s compensation defense and vigorously advance the worker’s compensation rights of employers throughout Indiana. Combined our attorneys have more than 40 years of worker’s compensation defense experience and have advocated employer’s positions in all six Indiana worker’s compensation hearing districts and in front of both the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court. We handle all forms of worker’s compensation issues and litigation, from simply drafting up settlement documents on behalf of employers whose case was settled directly with the claimant by the claims administrator to complex and catastrophic claims and injuries. Our experience with Medicare Set-Aside (“MSA”) issues, including the drafting and submission of a MSA, helps assist in the resolution of complex cases involving Medicare issues. We approach every case with an eye to providing cost effective and efficient representation realizing the economic reality of worker’s compensation claims versus the requisite cost of defense. Our attorneys also have significant experience with employment legal issues in general, and therefore can advise employers on the interplay between worker’s compensation, the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act. We can utilize this knowledge to advise on global settlement packages which may include a full and final settlement of worker’s compensation issues along with an employee resignation and release of any and all other claims, including any employment related claims.
