Schererville Work Injury Lawyer
Any work-related injury that will keep you off the job will work a hardship on you and your family. In Schererville work injuries can, like elsewhere in Indiana, lead to the need for costly medical treatment, as well as the need to replace lost income. However, navigating the Indiana workers’ compensation system effectively on your own can be a challenge. Also, work injuries also frequently are the result of the negligence of others besides employers and co-workers. In such situations you may have a claim against responsible third parties and not simply a workers compensation claim against your employer.
For example, what if you are operating a gas powered power saw at a Schererville construction site and the engine catches fire leading to severe burns? We handled just such a case in the past and were able to prove that the manufacturer used a faulty seal on the gas cap.
Or how about this example, a fellow was on a raised platform decorating a Schererville tree for Christmas when the boom hydraulics malfunctioned and sent him into energized powerlines where he suffered serious injuries. Not only was his employer legally responsible, but we were able to look to the power company and boom manufacturer for legal responsibility.
