What if My Workers’ Comp Claim Is Denied?
Unfortunately, workers’ comp denials are a common pitfall for many Indiana workers. There are various reasons why workers’ comp claims get denied. Common examples include:
- The injury wasn’t covered by workers’ compensation. In rare cases, certain injuries may not be covered by Indiana workers’ comp, such as self-inflicted injuries or those stemming from preexisting conditions.
- The worker was engaging in illegal/inappropriate behavior at the time of the injury. If the injured employee was engaging in misconduct at the time of their injury, such as an illegal activity or horseplay, they may not be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits.
- The injury wasn’t reported on time. In Indiana, workers must report their work-related injury to their employer within 30 days of the accident to be eligible for benefits.
- The injury wasn’t work-related. In the case of preexisting medical conditions or injuries that occur off of work premises, the injury may not be covered under Indiana workers’ comp.
Remember, it’s essential to consult with a qualified work injury lawyer who can review the details of your claim and work to maximize its value. At Alvarez Law Offices, we can assist with:
- Filing a work injury claim: Our knowledgeable attorneys help injured workers file claims promptly and correctly, in addition to managing important deadlines, court dates, and required paperwork.
- Investigation and evidence: Our experienced lawyers have represented the wrongfully injured in various types of claims since 1974, allowing us to thoroughly investigate the circumstances of your work injury claim to maximize its value and present compelling evidence in your favor.
- Effective negotiations: Often, large insurers and employers have an automatic advantage after a workplace accident. Our firm can help protect against unethical behavior and review all legal documentation with a practiced eye to ensure injured employees are treated fairly, as opposed to being taken advantage of by large employers or insurers during their recovery period.

Indiana Workers’ Compensation Laws
Workers’ compensation is designed to benefit employers and employees alike by providing financial support to workers injured on the job, from construction site accidents to malfunctioning equipment to repetitive strain injuries.
In Indiana, workers’ comp is a no-fault system, meaning that workers don’t have to prove fault on the part of an employer to receive workers’ compensation benefits. However, by receiving workers’ comp benefits, employees forfeit the right to take legal action against their employer.
Consulting with a trusted work injury attorney is a must to ensure you receive the fair benefits you deserve after a workplace accident. Our seasoned attorneys at Alvarez Law Offices have represented the wrongfully injured since 1974, making us a trusted source for sound counsel during the difficulties of recovery.
