Workers' Compensation Mediation in Indiana

Achieving Peaceful and Successful Outcomes for Indiana Employers and Workers

When Indiana workers are injured on the job, they are entitled to file a workers’ compensation claim. To avoid a costly court battle, mediation allows employers and employees to negotiate an equitable outcome.

When a Dispute Arises

As soon as an injured Indiana employee is injured on the job or becomes aware of a work-related medical condition they’ve developed, they may file a workers’ compensation claim with their employer. Once the employer receives the claim, they are required to submit documentation to their workers’ compensation insurance carrier. The insurer then determines whether to approve, delay, or deny the claim. Depending on their decision, the employee can take any number of actions to push for a larger settlement or appeal the initial denial of the claim.

Keeping Costs Down

Like many states, workers’ compensation disputes are encouraged to be negotiated and resolved in a number of ways before resorting to a formal hearing. The mediation process allows both the employee and the employer to come together in the presence of a neutral third-party (known as a “mediator”) to negotiate a fair outcome. By avoiding a lengthy court battle, both parties save valuable time and money in their search for a fair solution.
