    This module covers the technical aspects of insurance in Indiana including how insurance underwriters determine the premium employers pay and what factors drive up the cost of a workers' compensation insurance policy.

Also discussed are the requirements necessary to file a claim and the differences between traumatic and occupational injury claims.

  • Statutes of Limitation, Motions for "Med and Temp", and Basis Defenses

    In this module, a brief but thorough explanation of the extremely important issue of Motions for Medical and Temporary Benefits (Motions for "Med and Temp") is provided. It explains the requirements and timelines adjusters must follow as well as the nature and entitlement to medical benefits and tools needed to avoid litigation if possible. Also addressed are the multiple defenses available to the New Jersey Employer, the elements needed to assert these defenses, and the case law illustrating how these defenses can be properly asserted.

  • Occupations Disease Claims, Total and Permanent Disability Claims, The "Second Injury Fund", Credits, and Rule Changes

    In the final module, an in-depth discussion of Occupational Disease Claims is provided along with the additional elements needed to be proven by an injured employee to prevail. The difference between occupational claims and traumatic injury claims is of great importance and will dictate not only the defenses asserted, but also the respective burdens of the parties in litigation.
