Workers’ comp carriers, more than ever, look for ways to avoid paying expensive treatment. Whether you’ve been ordered to have an MRI, surgery, a spinal cord stimulator or pain treatment, be aware that the workers’ comp carrier may seek to avoid paying for these necessary treatments. Tactics used by these carriers may include utilization review, a second medical opinion, a psychological evaluation or simply denying the treatment.
Don’t let the insurance company get away with denying you needed medical care! Under the law in Indiana, the workers’ comp carrier MUST provide you with all necessary care as deemed medically needed by the attending physician. If you need assistance, please contact our office.
If you would benefit from legal counsel, our office does not charge for a consultation. We’re here to offer our experience to make sure you receive what you’re legally entitled.
Did you know that all Indiana Worker’s Compensation attorneys charge the same fees? The fees are set by Indiana law. Under the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act, attorney fees are limited to 20% of the first $50,000.00, and 15% of any remaining balance.
Klezmer Maudlin can only charge a percentage of any recovery received and never charge you an up-front fee for our services. With limited exceptions, we also will collect our out-of-pocket expenses from the recovery and not from you. If you hire us with an offer already given to you, we will typically agree not to charge an attorney fee unless we recover additional money. For example, if you hire us with an offer already of $5,000.00 and 3 months later we tell you we can only get you $5,000.00, we will typically not charge you.
We will discuss this in more detail at the initial meeting and put our agreement in writing. If you have any questions regarding our attorney’s fee, please contact us at 1-800-809-3776.
