Home / Practice Areas / Workers' Compensation Claims

An injured worker lays on the ground with his hard hat no longer on his head.At the Indiana law firm of the Boughter Law Office, we assist injured workers at all stages of a workers' compensation claim in an effort to maximize settlements. In many cases, our office will advance the cost of obtaining a second medical opinion, also known as an independent medical examination, in an effort to double check the workers' compensation physician and to determine whether any further treatment is indicated, as well as to assess an appropriate permanent partial impairment rating (PPI rating).
