When pioneers first started to settle in Highland, most work injuries occurred while doing farm work or hunting.
Nowadays Highland is dependent on its railroads and manufacturing industries, though there is still an agricultural base.

Within Highland’s borders is the Little Calumet River, which has periodically flooded over the years. Significant floods have affected Highland in 2008, 2007, and 2006. However, an especially damaging flood occurred on November 28, 1990. On this date the Wicker Park Manor subdivision in the town of Highland, was inundated with water, compelling the evacuation of between 250 and 375 families. Attorney David Holub served as co-class counsel and successfully represented all of these families as they fought to obtain compensation for a failed attempt to reconstruct a degraded railroad embankment that for years had functioned as a levee, protecting the subdivision from the waters of the Little Calumet River. As a result of that same flood, David Holub also represented the family of a heroic individual who was electrocuted when he was working to fight the flood waters in an effort to save the subdivision.

Notwithstanding a danger from periodic flooding, for people living and working in Highland, industrial, construction and other work injury incidents are always ever present dangers. Such work injuries run the gamut from electrical contact injuries, press machines crushing hands and arms, and traumatic amputations.

If you are unable to work due to a work injury, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. You may also be able to sue a third party if that third party is responsible for the conditions which led to you being hurt on the job. Looking for third party liability is crucial, since workers’ compensations laws are only designed to aid employees get their lost wages, and get medical bills paid. Also, these benefits are very limited in Indiana.
