According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics 2012 figures, there are 117 injured workers per every 10,000 workers in the United States. Indiana accounts for thousands of these work related injuries every year. On top of the stress that comes with injuries, many workers are not adequately, or at all, compensated for their work related injuries. When you leave home for work each morning, you likely do so with the expectation that your job environment is safe and secure. However, in each workplace there is always the chance for an injury or accident to occur. The opportunity for an accident or injury is even more serious for people who work in dangerous work environments, or if an employer permits inadequate safety standards at the workplace.
Workers compensation is a complex legal matter that can include extensive deadlines, possible independent medical evaluations, and an extensive review of the facts surrounding the injury. This is done to determine whether a third party is responsible for the injury, workplace safety violations, or product liability. To ensure you are meeting all the proper deadlines and are compiling the strongest case possible, it is important to get an experienced attorney on your side.
In most professions you are expected to devote time, energy, and dedication to your job, but no one can ask you to sacrifice your health or more importantly, your safety. When you suffer an injury at work, do not let the physical and emotional burdens overwhelm you. Your employer should bear the financial burden. If you’ve suffered an injury at work and have not received the compensation you deserve, we can help.
In Indiana, an employer has strict responsibilities placed on them when a worker is injured on the job. Their responsibilities include:
