Civil Litigation

Indiana civil rights and bad faith insurance attorneys

Many civil rights issues deal with discrimination in the workplace, which is prohibited by the various statutes:

  • Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA)
  • Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)
  • Employees Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA)
  • Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (Title VII)
  • Indiana Wage Statute, IC

A number of potential remedies are available depending upon the type of claim you have. These can include:

  • Injunctions
  • Reinstatement
  • Compensatory damages
  • Back wages
  • Punitive damages
  • Attorney fees (if you substantially prevail at the time of trial)

Contact an attorney quickly

The time limits for filing claims with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or the Indiana Civil Rights Commission are very short. In a matter of months, you can lose your right to pursue your claim forever. If you believe you have been a victim of a discriminatory employment decision, do not wait to act on your claim! Call and meet with the EEOC or the Indiana Civil Rights Commission to file a claim and initiate an investigation.

If you feel you have been wronged by your employer and are unsure what to do or simply want help in presenting your case to the EEOC or the Indiana Civil Rights Commission, contact Yosha Cook Shartzer & Tisch to review your case and discuss available options.

Bad faith insurance

Insurance companies have a fiduciary obligation to their customers to treat them fairly when handling their claims for property loss or injury.

When an insurance company fails to deal fairly with its own insured or a third party making a claim, it often makes sense to seek experienced legal counsel. Insurance policy language is quite complex and is not subject to negotiation by the consumer. Contract principles which apply and pertinent case law which assists the courts in interpreting the meaning of the insurance policy are difficult for an ordinary person to understand.

We stand ready to assist if you become embroiled in an insurance dispute and feel you are not being treated fairly or the insurance is not fairly interpreting and enforcing the policy.
