To discuss what happened with a lawyer who cares, call 219-440-7550, or contact us by secure e-mail. We represent clients involved in personal injury and medical malpractice cases on a contingent basis, meaning that we are paid only if we win your case.
In Northwest Indiana, our attorneys have pursued - and won - cases in which our clients suffered grievous injury in accidents like these: Explosions leading to serious burns and disfigurement crush injuries causing amputation, including loss of legs, fingers, arms, or paralysis; Electrical explosions; Slips-and-falls from ladders or off of machines leading to back injury, neck injury and other injury; Machines not turned off, locked out, or tagged out when being fixed (OSHA rules) causing serious permanent injury exposure to gas chemicals causing permanent lung damage loading dock accidents causing permanent back, shoulder or neck injury cases involving industrial accidents can have complicated issues of liability. We will fully investigate every potential cause of the accident, such as:
- Was a design or manufacture flaw in a piece of equipment a contributor to the accident?
- Was a subcontractor a causal factor in the accident?
- Was it willful disregard of OSHA safety rules that caused the accident?
Depending on the answers to questions like these, we will make a determination whether a client's case is strictly workers' compensation, or whether he or she may also have legal basis to file a personal injury claim, which will allow for damages related to pain and suffering.
