Workplace accidents can happen anywhere. While preventing them is of the utmost importance, it is also important for workers to understand and use their rights if they’re ever injured on the job. Unfortunately, many workers throughout Kentucky don’t know about their workers’ compensation options because their employer never explains them.
At Kentucky Injury Law Center, our Pikeville workers’ compensation lawyers can help you make the most of your workers’ compensation benefits. You should be given the chance to fully recover from your workplace injury without breaking the bank, which is exactly the point of workers’ comp. It is only a matter of getting those benefits from an insurance company that might complicate things. If you don’t have workers’ comp, then we can also help you with a personal injury claim.

Managing a workers’ compensation case can be stressful if you aren’t familiar with all the legal processes and steps. Ideally, it is as simple as filing your claim and awaiting your benefits.

- Challenging and appealing any claim denials and challenges.
When Every Benefit Counts
Workers’ compensation has multiple benefits that you might be able to use to help with your recovery after a workplace accident. To make matters better, workers’ comp is also a no-fault insurance program that gives benefits and coverage to claimants, regardless of liability for their injuries. In other words, you and you alone could cause your accident at work, and you would still be eligible to receive the benefits owed to you.
Five important benefits that workers’ comp provides are:
- Medical treatment care coverage with no cap
- Temporary disability benefits if you need time off work to recover
- Permanent disability benefits if you can never fully return to work
- Vocational rehabilitation to help you start a new position or career
- Death benefits if you lost a loved one to a fatal workplace injury
