You can sue them, but the chances of that suit being successful are quite low given the immunity granted to government entities in Indiana. You'll also have the Indiana Tort Claims Notice to deal with. The best route is to pursue an insurance claim and possible a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.

The statute of limitations in Indiana for minors is 2 years after they turn 18, so you have plenty of time to file a claim. That being said, contact a local personal injury attorney immediately as the sooner you contact them the better they'll be able to help.

In this case the employee would likely receive something from the doctor, assuming this is a work comp doctor, saying that he/she will need to be off work for a certain amount of time if the pain is too much. My recommendation in this situation would be to have the employee go back to the doctor to see if time off work is necessary.
