Protecting the Rights of the Injured Worker
Alcorn Sage Schwartz & Magrath, is proud to represent injured workers in Indiana and Kentucky. When an individual is injured on the job and in the “course and scope of their employment,” this individual has a workers compensation claim. Often times, injured workers are completely unaware of their rights and remedies under worker’s compensation law. Unfortunately, injured workers do not usually get much information as to their rights from the worker’s compensation carrier or their employer. It is often a good idea for an injured worker to contact an attorney to ask them questions about their legal rights in their worker’s compensation claim.

Alcorn Sage Schwartz & Magrath, strives to assist the injured worker with obtaining their benefits as allowed by law. The benefits to which an injured worker is entitled in a worker’s compensation claim include: medical treatment, lost wages, and payment for permanent impairment that the worker may have as a result of their injuries. Additionally, some injured workers are entitled to funds for payment of future medical expenses and permanent disability benefits from the employer. Often times, worker’s compensation benefits go uncollected by the injured worker, primarily because the injured worker is not aware that such benefits are available.
Alcorn Sage Schwartz & Magrath, handles worker’s compensations pursuant to Indiana and Kentucky statutes, which determine the amount of attorneys fees for these worker compensation claims. Worker’s compensation cases are handled on a contingency fee basis, meaning that the injured worker only pays our law firm when we collect a settlement for that injured worker. Consultations with an attorney from our office for a worker’s compensation claim are at no charge.
