      The fund would be used to award compensation to any workers injured in industrial accidents regardless of fault or liability. Proponents argued that, if enacted, the bill would increase awards paid to injured workers, free courts of expensive litigation, make costs to employers predictable, and improve labor relations throughout the state. Attorneys engaged in defending workers’ compensation claims in Indiana may occasionally encounter a situation in which a claimant chooses to maintain claims in multiple states arising out of the same incident or injury. Potential issues in practice may arise where injured workers pursue claims in multiple states, implicating res judicata and collateral estoppel concerns.
