Artificial braces and devices are to be provided by the employer when the work accident claim has been accepted. This includes instances where the injured worker already had a prosthetic part that was damaged or destroyed in the work accident. Thereafter, replacements or necessary repairs for normal wear and tear will be paid out of the Second Injury Fund. The Second Injury Fund is a pool of money administered by the Sate of Indiana. To apply for replacement of your prosthetic device, contact the Indiana Worker’s Compensation Board at 800-824-2667.
