We Help You Navigate The Workers’ Compensation Process
Workers’ compensation exists in Kentucky to help employees injured on the job with the financial aspects of their injuries. It can help you with:
- Paying your medical bills
- Replacing a percentage of the wages you lose by being sidelined from work
- Reimbursement for traveling to medical visits as well as other out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury
The process of applying for and receiving the benefits can be complicated. An experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you prepare your paperwork appropriately and fight for your rights if your claim is delayed or denied.
Filing A Personal Injury Claim After A Construction Accident
While workers’ compensation is one source of funding assistance you may be able to tap for your recovery, your employer owes it to you to provide a relatively safe and hazard-free work environment. Many injuries are a result of a company not doing everything it could to protect its workers. Our firm’s lawyer can examine all the medical evidence in your case and construct a claim that documents the amount of money you deserve and need to finance your recovery and ongoing medical care.
