Full Benefits from Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
Whether you were injured in a work-related accident or developed an injury from years of doing the same job, your employer or its insurance carrier is responsible for your medical bills, lost wages and any permanent damage.
The Law Office of Meier, Wickhem, Lyons & Schulz in Janesville represents injured workers throughout Rock County, southern Wisconsin and statewide. Jim Meier is recognized as a skilled workers' compensation lawyer in the state — and he will personally handle your case.
Contact us immediately at 800-803-1138 if you have suffered a job-related injury. In a free consultation, Mr. Meier will explain your rights and benefits you are entitled to, including those often overlooked by employers. He can also help if your workers' compensation claim has been denied or your employer won't take you back.
We Handle All Workers’ Compensation Cases
In 34 years of practice, Mr. Meier has handled almost every type of work injury claim, including claims involving:
- Back injury and neck injuries
- Shoulder and knee injuries
- Broken bones and lacerations
- Lost fingers and limbs
- Burns and explosions
- Eye injury and hearing loss
- Occupational illness (repetitive motion injury or toxic exposure)
We work to secure temporary disability benefits in a timely fashion and ensure that our clients can get proper medical treatment. If your injuries are severe, we work to get you properly rated for permanent total disability or permanent partial disability, including job-retraining benefits to prepare for a new line of work.
Mr. Meier will help prepare your initial claim or appeal a rejected claim. He also handles bad faith actions and violations of state law, such as when employers order an employee back to work under threat of termination or refuse to allow the worker back after a term of disability.
If a person or entity other than your employer caused or contributed to your injury (a machinery manufacturer, a construction subcontractor, another driver), Meier, Wickhem, Lyons & Schulz will also pursue third party lawsuits for damages in addition to your workers' compensation claim.
