The Kentucky Workers’ Compensation system is a complicated maze of rules and regulations. For an injured employee, trying to navigate the system alone can be confusing and overwhelming.
Many employees trust their employer to take care of them when something happens. These injured workers are often surprised when their employer’s insurance company challenges or denies their right to medical treatment and income benefits. The insurance company will fight to reduce the value of the benefits and medical treatment you are entitled to receive through the workers’ comp system. The insurance company is not on your side, but we are. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys are here to help you. Our job is to protect your rights, and to ensure that you receive the full amount of benefits that you deserve under Kentucky law, including:
- Medical treatment needed due to the injury,
- Temporary income benefits to compensate for lost wages,
- Permanent income benefits to compensate for long-term disability or physical impairment related to the injury, and
- Vocational rehabilitation benefits.
