Worker’s Compensation provides benefits for those injured on the job. Surviving dependents are also provided for in the event of a job-related death. For any on the job injury, claims must be submitted to the Worker's Compensation Board in order to receive compensation.
Indiana Code § 22-3-2-2 requires employers and employees to pay and accept compensation for personal injury or death due to accidents arising out of and in the course of employment.
Indiana Code § 22-3-2-8 sets additional qualifications for a Worker’s Compensation claim, preventing recovery for self-inflicted injury.
Indiana Code § 22-3-3-3 requires that claims for Worker's Compensation be brought within two years of the accident or, if death results, within two years of the date of death.
Additionally, certain types of employers and employees are exempt from the Worker’s Compensation Act, such as working for a railroad engaged in train service.
When it comes to the matter of Worker’s Compensation, there are two main forms of dispute resolution that will be used: the informal and formal process.
