Kentucky Worker’s Compensation
Every employer in this state is required to provide Workers’ Compensation Insurance coverage.
The employer is required to pay for any and all of your necessary medical treatment.
The employer is also required to pay entitled to a portion of your wages as temporary disability if you are unable to work. These benefits come at no cost to you.
The Workers’ Compensation system in Kentucky is a no fault system which means that you are entitled to these benefits if you are injured in the course of your employment. Even if you are at fault for the accident that resulted in your injuries, you are entitled to coverage. In many cases, medical and temporary disability benefits are provided without any problems. However, our firm has frequently represented workers whose medical and temporary disability benefits have been arbitrarily cut off. If you are hurt and are unable to work and your benefits are being unlawfully withheld,The Law Office of James. M. West has experience fighting for your rights in the Workers’ Compensation courts of Kentucky.
Upon completion of your treatment, you may be entitled to total or partial total disability benefits. Even if you are able to return to your previous job you may still be entitled to some of these benefits. Typically, an injured employee is not informed of these benefits and our office works regularly to secure these payments for our clients.
