Types of Injuries Covered by Workers’ Comp
Most employers are required to carry worker’s compensation to cover employee accidents. The workers’ compensation system in Indiana is designed to compensate injured employees for medical bills, lost wages, and permanent impairment resulting from their injuries. You must take specific steps to obtain these benefits, as delineated in Indiana state laws.
Generally, to qualify for workers’ compensation, your injuries must have occurred while you were performing your job duties, whether on or off the business’ premises. Additionally, you may seek workers’ comp if you have contacted an illness or disease that has arisen from poor conditions in your workplace.
Not all injuries that occur on the job can be covered by workers’ compensation. For example, cuts, scrapes, or other minor wounds that can be remedied by first aid treatment are not considered severe enough to warrant compensation.
The types of injuries for which compensation is typically available include:
- Broken bones
- Loss of limbs
- Spinal cord injury
- Nerve damage
- Muscle injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Occupational diseases
Common causes of injuries that can be covered by workers’ comp include:
- Vehicle accidents
- Falling objects
- Machinery accidents
- Falls, slips, and trips
- Workplace violence
- Fires and explosions
- Exposure to harmful substances and environments
