If I Fall While at Work, I Make a Worker's Compensation

One of the lesser-known laws in Indiana is that a person cannot sue his or her employer directly for negligence (except in rare circumstances), if the injury occurred while working.


These laws were intended to protect employers and to entice companies to locate to Indiana so that people could be hired and the economy grow.

Worker's compensation "exclusivity" -- as the law is called -- means that an injured person can bring a worker's compensation claim and seek payment of medical bills and for permanent and temporary injuries, but typically at reduced rates set by the Indiana legislature.  If you have a worker's compensation case, we might be able to help you.

But, you should do one step more.

Oftentimes, the slip and fall victim might not realize that the fall occurred on land or property owned or controlled by somebody other than the employer.  Or that the land and property was being maintained pursuant to a contract of maintenance that obligated the contractor to keep the property in a reasonably safe condition.

That is why you should never assume you don't have a slip and fall case in Indiana.
