FAQs: WORKPLACE INJURIES

 

How can I file a workers compensation claim in Indiana?

If your injury or illness is work-related, be sure to mention this to your doctor when you first seek medical assistance. If you decide to make a claim, take these steps:

  1. Inform your employer that you suffered a personal injury or illness on the job. It’s important that you let them know within 30 days of the incident. Your claim may be denied otherwise. Request that your employer writes up a report for the workers compensation insurance company. You should also inform your company’s human resources department of the situation.
  2. Make sure the necessary forms are filed. Your employer only has 7 days to file an accident/personal injury/illness report, so be sure they take care of it promptly and properly.
  3. Wait for the decision on your claim. The insurance company will start investigating your claim as soon as they receive the proper files from your employer. You will likely be contacted by the insurance company, and they will also likely go online to investigate your social media activity to ensure a false claim is not being made. It is especially important that you are honest about the extent of your injuries.

Remember that an insurance company has its own best interests at heart. A personal injury attorney has YOUR best interest at heart. If you are overwhelmed by the claim process, concerned about your claim being denied, or your employer is not supporting you or filing reports in a timely manner, you should consider hiring a personal injury lawyer or contact a law firm like Klezmer Maudlin that specializes in work-related illness or injury.

Can I sue workers compensation for pain and suffering due to my injuries?

With a workers compensation claim, you can recover losses due to things like medical bills and lost wages, but you cannot sue for pain and suffering. It is only through a personal injury lawsuit that you can receive damages for pain and suffering, but only if you can successfully prove that someone else was at fault.

Can I sue my employer if I’m injured at work?

Almost all businesses in Indiana are expected to have workers compensation insurance. If you are an employee who gets injured or ill on the job, you will have access to workers compensation as your employer is legally required to file a report on your behalf once you inform them of your illness/injury. The benefits should be enough to cover lost wages and any injury-related medical bills. The only way you could sue your employer for an injury is if they do not have a workers compensation policy in place.

Can I sue for a workplace injury if I wasn’t at my regular place of employment?

If you suffer from a workplace injury in a location other than your normal workplace, you are still eligible to receive workers compensation benefits if your employer had you working in that secondary location. If you were not working (ex. it was your lunch break while not on the job) or if you were not asked by your employer to work at that location, then no, you cannot sue and you will not be eligible for workers compensation.

Is it worth it to hire an injury attorney?

In short, yes. Firstly, if you are suffering from work-related injuries, your number one priority is your health and well-being. Filing reports and waiting on claims results should be the least of your worries. Secondly, not all employers can be relied upon to file an accident/illness report on time, and not all insurance companies will give you fair compensation if it’s given at all. Attorneys work for you. You are their number one priority, so they will do everything possible to get the maximum amount of compensation available to you. Personal injury or work injury lawyers can help you file your accident/injury report and they are experts at dealing with insurance companies. It’s always better to have an experienced professional on your side.
