INDIANAPOLIS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION LAWYER
WORKERS’ COMP IN INDIANA
Workers’ compensation allows an employee to recover for injuries sustained on the job. The injured person does not need to prove fault or negligence to obtain compensation. In Indiana, an employee cannot sue his employer for an accident that results from his employer’s negligence.
The Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act (also known as the Indiana Employer Protection Act) details the benefits an employee may recover if he or she receives a work injury. The act limits the amount a person can recover in workers’ compensation actions. Injured workers may recover damages for some lost wages, medical benefits and compensation for a disability caused by a workplace accident.
Unfortunately, an employee cannot recover for pain and suffering or other benefits in workers’ compensation cases. A third-party claim against nonemployers is an option that may allow workers to receive maximum coverage for their losses.
