Florence Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Fighting for Every Benefit You Deserve

Kentucky Injury Law Center is known in Florence as a legal team that really stands up for our clients. Insurance companies can get too comfortable with the idea of blocking claims for no justifiable reason, but not when we’re around. We are not afraid to take them head-on if it means getting the most compensation and benefits for our workers’ comp clients.

Benefits that we can help you secure include:

  • Medical treatment: 100% of your necessary medical treatments, including those far into the future, should be provided through workers’ comp benefits.
  • Disability benefits: Temporary and permanent disability benefits can supplement your missing wages for a time, depending on the extent and duration of your disability.
  • Vocational rehabilitation: If you need to begin a new job or career due to a permanent disability, then the cost of retraining or learning new skills can be covered.
  • Death benefits: Surviving family members of a loved one who died while working can be given death benefits to help keep them financially afloat.

How many of these benefits do you need? Whatever the answer, you can rest easier knowing that you’ve found an experienced legal team that knows how to fight for them.

What is a No-Fault Insurance System?

Although it might not be explained to you at the time you start a new job and get workers’ compensation coverage, workers’ comp is actually a no-fault insurance system. When considering the validity of a workers’ comp claim, the insurance company does not normally consider fault or liability for workplace accidents and injuries. Whether the employer or employee or even a third party causes the accident is largely irrelevant. The no-fault system for workers’ compensation is a huge benefit to workers because it removes the stress of having to prove that someone else caused their injury. Workers can even get benefits if they admit that they made a mistake that ultimately led to the accident.

Workers’ comp benefits should be provided if:

  • Your injury happened in the scope of your employment; and,
  • You are covered by a workers’ compensation insurance policy.

In Kentucky, nearly all employees must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance. Some workers in the agricultural industry are not covered, though, and neither are most independent contractors.

Are There Downsides to Workers’ Compensation?

As helpful as workers’ compensation can be, it is not a perfect system. There are some limits to workers’ comp and downsides that you should know about before diving into a case.

Limitations to workers’ compensation in Kentucky include:

  • Monetary award limits: Money received pays for a portion of lost wages and costs for approved, necessary medical treatments. Extra damages associated with your pain and suffering are not factored into a workers’ compensation award or benefit.
  • Protected parties: When you file a workers’ compensation claim in pursuit of benefits, you are also agreeing to not sue your employer directly for their negligence. You are likely not even able to sue your employer if you are hurt in relation to your occupation, even if you don’t get any workers’ compensation benefits.
  • Preselected doctors: The insurance company handling your workers’ compensation case might have the first word in what doctor you see after a workplace accident. With the help of our workers' compensation lawyers in Florence, though, you might be able to see your chosen physician for future appointments.
