Work Injuries (or Workers’ Compensation)
Cases which require legal counsel involving work-related accidents, injuries associated with employment, or industrial exposure to harmful products.
A work injury can be devastating and life changing. When a person suffers an injury while on the job, the claim must be handled in accordance with laws enforced by the Kentucky Labor Cabinet and the Department of Worker’s Claims. It is important for an injured worker to have an attorney to guide him/her through this maze of administrative law. The injury must be properly reported. The wage rate paid for time off from work, known as temporary total disability, must be properly calculated. Proof of the amount of permanent disability must comply with the law and value multipliers must be proven properly.
