Authority: IC 22-3-1-3
Affected: IC 22-3-3-6; IC 22-3-7-24
Sec. 11. (a) The parties to any proceeding before the board shall stipulate the facts in writing. If all related facts and issues are so stipulated, the board may make its order or award without a hearing.
- Where the stipulation covers a permanent partial impairment, it will be necessary to file with the stipulation a report of a physician furnished by the employer and also a report of a physician employed by and representing the employee, as to their opinions of percent of permanent partial impairment unless such reports have been previously filed. The employee may waive examination by a physician other than the one provided by the employer. In such cases, the employee's written waiver shall be filed with the report of the employer's physician.
- To the end that proceedings may be disposed of expeditiously and with the least possible expense to the parties and the state, the board encourages the parties to stipulate facts whenever it can reasonably be done.
