Can I Sue My Employer After A Work Injury?

Steve Wagner

One of the most frequent questions we receive is whether or not someone who has suffered a work injury can sue their employer for damages. Unfortunately, the state of Indiana does not allow civil suits against employers for work-related injury damages.

If you have suffered a work injury, you will need to go through the workers’ compensation system to receive any damages you are owed, and the best way to do that is with the assistance of an experience work injury lawyer.

If you are having trouble receiving an adequate settlement from your employer, Wagner Reese can help you file an adjustment of claim before the work comp board. This is typically the best and most efficient way to appeal for a higher claim. If this does not work in your favor, we can help you take the next steps to getting the money that is rightfully yours.

With Wagner Reese, you can count on our work comp experience fighting for you to receive the settlement you deserve. When you are injured at work, give us a call and schedule a free consultation with us to discuss your injury, your workers’ compensation issues, and any trouble with your employer. We can help you get the money you need to recover and succeed while living with a life-altering injury.
