Most worker`s compensation claims are resolved without dispute. If questions or disagreements arise between the employer, carrier, and employee, the Ombudsman division may be able to informally assist the parties in resolving the problem. Disputes may also be resolved through a hearing before the Worker`s Compensation Board. You can contact the Ombudsman with general questions or problems by calling the Worker`s Compensation Board of Indiana Ombudsman Division at: (800) 8242667 or (317) 2325922.
