Workplace accidents are a major problem in Northern Indiana. The Indiana Department of Labor reports that more than 93,000 workers experienced a ‘recordable event’ in the year 2014 alone. Under U.S. government standards, the term ‘recordable event’ refers to a workplace accident that required medical care beyond first-aid, a work injury that led to missed days on the job, or a work injury that forced an employee to transfer to a less intensive position.
Dealing with the aftermath of a serious workplace accident can put a tremendous strain on an Indiana family. The good news is that injured employees have legal options available. The Workers’ Compensation Act of Indiana mandates that companies in the state provide no-fault workers’ compensation coverage. If you were hurt on the job, you are entitled to benefits under this program. However, unfortunately, getting full workers’ compensation benefits can often be challenging.
