Indiana Workers Compensation

Recommended Posts

No.  Workers comp covers injuries that occur during the course of employment, not off-duty hours.  General premises liability would cover an injury IF it were the result of the landowner's negligence like broken stairs or collapsing guardrails.  If you just trip over your own feet, you're on your own.

So, then how is "on/off duty" defined when you live and work on the premises of your employer? I was doing work related activities in my room, went out to take a break, sat on a bench, and it broke. Would that be considered "on duty" even though the accident occurred after traditional working hours(around 6:00 pm) and especially given I am an exempt employee? Will that injury be covered under workers compensation in the State of Indiana?

To learn more about this subject matter, you may be interested in visiting the Accidents and Injures Center and reading Workers' Compensation as a good resource. If you need further clarification on your specific situation, you may consider signing up for a LegalStreet plan. With the plan, you have unlimited access to a local lawyer to ask your questions and the plan also offers discounted legal representation should you need it.
