Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Insurance Claim?

If you are not a federal employee and were injured at work in Indiana, you are eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Your eligibility begins on the first day of your employment, and all employers in the state are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance.

If you intend to file a workers’ compensation insurance claim, reach out to our workplace injury lawyers in Indianapolis for help. We can walk you through this process and help you complete the necessary paperwork that can increase your odds of filing a successful claim.

If your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, they may be in violation of the law. In this case you can pursue a recovery of damages by filing a personal injury lawsuit, as you would against a third party.

Who Is a Third Party in a Workplace Injury?

A third party in a workplace injury claim is someone other than you or your employer. Third parties can be held liable for causing accidents through their negligent or wrongful acts. If they are working for their employers at the time of the incident, their employers may be held liable as well.

An example of a third party in this context could be someone who runs a red light and causes a bad traffic accident. If you are driving for your employer and are injured in this accident, then the third party that hit you can be held liable for what occurred.

Another example of a third party in a workplace injury lawsuit could be a company that produced a defective product. If using a defective product at work resulted in an injury, then the company who manufactured and/or designed it can be held liable.

What Can I Recover from a Workplace Injury Lawsuit?

If you are injured at work by a third party’s negligence or wrongful acts, you may be able to recover compensation for debts you incurred as a result. You may also be able to hold your employer liable if they do not carry workers’ compensation insurance.

Recoverable compensation in a workplace injury lawsuit can include the following:

  • Lost wages at two-thirds of your average weekly rate, but only if a doctor authorized by a workers’ compensation insurance company determines you should not work for a period of time.
  • Permanent or partial disability payments, again if authorized by the insurance company’s authorized physician.
  • Medical expenses to the providers selected by an employer or their workers’ compensation insurance carrier.
  • Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses, if any were made.

Any of the above categories can represent tens or hundreds of thousands in bills you incurred as a result of an injury at work. Our qualified workplace injury lawyers in Indianapolis, however, can help you pursue the compensation you need.
