Lake & Porter County Spine Injury Attorneys
At Dugan & Rybicki, we represent workers that have been injured in a work related accident. As an Indiana employee, you may have a right to receive workers’ compensation benefits if you have suffered a work related injury or disease.
To receive compensation, you do not need to prove that your employer is negligent. Workers’ compensation is a type of insurance that employers purchase to provide coverage in the event of a worker’s injury. Our Lake County workers’ compensation attorneys can help you pursue workers’ compensation benefits if you have suffered a workplace injury, including:
- Shoulder injury/rotator cuff tears
- Back injury
- Neck injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Herniated disc injury
If you have suffered a workplace injury, contact Dugan & Rybicki in St. John, Indiana. Our Lake County law firm represents clients throughout northern Indiana.
Back, Neck and Shoulder Injuries
Most jobs put tremendous pressure on a worker’s back, neck and shoulder. Jobs that require frequent lifting, standing, driving, construction work and other strenuous activity can be particularly dangerous.
If you have suffered an injury to your back, neck or shoulders as a result of your job, you may have a right to receive medical benefits and wage loss (temporary disability and permanent impairment) benefits through a workers’ compensation claim. Our attorneys more than 40 years of legal experience and have helped many clients obtain workers’ compensation benefits.
Aggravation of Pre-Existing Injuries
If your job has caused the aggravation of a pre-existing back injury, neck injury or shoulder injury, do not let your employer tell you that you are not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Workers have a right to receive benefits for the aggravation of a pre-existing injury.
