This week we examine the issues of whether a volunteer who accepts medical benefits under a worker's compensation policy is bound to the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act for exclusive recovery. We also examine the Indiana Equine Activity Statute and the ability to bring a negligence claim for injuries caused by a horse. The discussions are conducted through the context of this week's Indiana Court of Appeals decision in Einhorn v. Johnson.
