Indiana law requires employers to provide a variety of benefits (usually through worker's compensation insurance) to employees who are injured or killed while on the job. Basic worker's compensation benefits include payment of all medical bills, weekly or bi-weekly lost wage checks (often called TTD), and a monetary payment for the employee's permanent physical damage.
Additional reimbursement is often appropriate for out-of-pocket prescription costs and mileage expenses for travel to and from medical appointments. In many cases, the development of special evidence can result in extended lost wage payments and for coverage of an employee's "future medical" needs.
An employee that is injured is entitled to these benefits without having to prove anybody was negligent. That means that the benefits are payable regardless of whether the injury was the employer's fault, a coworker's fault, nobody's fault, or even the employee's fault.
There are also circumstances when an injured employee may be entitled to worker's compensation benefits but be unaware that he/she has a viable claim. For instance, an employee who is injured while driving and/or traveling on business may be covered.
