Pikeville Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Let Us Know If You Got Hurt at Work

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.

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

Workers’ Compensation Denials & Appeals

A no-fault insurance program like workers’ compensation does not mean that every single case will be approved automatically. Insurance companies still have room to challenge and deny claims that they think do not apply under the coverage definitions. Or, as it happens in some cases, an insurance company might wrongfully deny a claim in hopes the claimant gives up, which will save them money in the long run.

Workers’ compensation denials can happen because the:

  • Injury did not happen in the context of the worker’s job.
  • Injury is not covered by the workers’ compensation policy.
  • Claimant did not file a claim in time.
  • Claimant did not give enough information when filing a claim.

If the insurance company is feeling particularly bold, then it might even accuse the claimant of fabricating their injury. Our highly experienced team of workers' compensation attorneys in Pikeville knows what to do to challenge all of these reasons for denial and more. We might be able to get the insurer to agree to pay a settlement after a challenge letter, or we can prepare to file an official appeal or lawsuit.
