Indiana Sets Up Special Process for State Fair Claims
The state of Indiana is asking families of those killed or injured in a deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair to complete a new customized claim form by Nov. 1 so the state can expedite settlements.
The attorney general's office said Monday the new form is available online at the agency's website and by calling 1-800-760-4616.
The form allows victims to apply for payments from the Indiana Tort Claim Fund. As of Monday, the agency said 21 claims had been filed against the $5 million fund.
The agency says claims can still be filed after Nov. 1, but the funds will likely be exhausted.
Seven people died and more than 40 were injured as a result of the Aug. 13 accident.
