Work Injury Claims
Workers compensation or work injury claims are often handled differently than personal injury claims.
Most commonly, the victim in a work injury seeks compensation from an employer’s workers compensation insurance rather than the employer themselves.
Employers in most states are required to insure their employees in case of injury. The insurance can transfer risk and litigation expense from the employer to the insurance company.
After an injury, injured workers are often required to file a claim describing their injuries and seek medical attention. This is the case when it comes to Indiana workers compensation claims. In the case of a true work related injury, the insurance company will offer a settlement to cover medical expenses and time off work.
Speak with a legal professional before agreeing to the workers compensation offer. You may get a more favorable settlement.
