Indiana has statutes that set out all the benefits an injured worker may recover in the event of a work injury. These statutes make up the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act and further define employee and independent contractor distinctions. The act limits what the injured employee can recover or receive from the employer for any injury that may occur within the course and scope of one’s employment. If you're seeking to file a worker's comp claim, you may want to procure legal services.
Indiana Worker's Compensation Claims - The Details
The limitation on recovery relieves the employer from liability and payment of damages other than those set out in the Indiana Employer Protection Act – more commonly known as the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act. For example, there is no pain and suffering in worker's compensation cases. Our offices in Indianapolis and Kokomo deal with many such cases however, and can help maximize the many other benefits an Indiana injured worker can receive, such as:
- Lost wages or temporary wages stemming from disability
- Permanent impairment or disability
- Prescription cost and reimbursement
- Medical treatment that is in dispute
There are also several other hidden benefits that the insurance companies and employers do not want you to know about. Work accidents happen in a variety of ways and cause a wide range of injuries. Indiana has the same benefits state wide, so it makes no difference if you were injured in:
- Indianapolis or Marion County
- Ft. Wayne or Allen County
- Evansville, IN
- Richmond, IN
- Kokomo or Howard County
- Marion or Grant County
- Anderson, Indiana
- Huntington, IN
- Wabash, Indiana
- Logansport or Cass County
- Columbus, IN
- Terra Haute, Indiana
- Frankfort or Clinton County
- Franklin, IN
No matter the city or county - all the benefits are the same.
