Worker’s Compensation, in the form of temporary wage replacement, permanent disability compensation, and medical benefits, is available for employees that have experienced personal injury or death by accident arising out of and in the course of employment. The Worker’s Comp system in Indiana is set up as a trade-off of sorts. This system evens the playing field and makes it easier for an injured employee to acquire compensation through the legal process, mainly by not having a negligence based standard and prevention of certain employer defenses (comparative negligence, assumption of risk, etc.). However, an employee’s damages are limited from that of a regular personal injury case, mainly by excluding pain and suffering as an available damage. If you have been injured on the job, worker’s compensation is probably your exclusive remedy for this type of injury.
