Workers Compensation Lawyer Serving Murray Paducah and Southwestern Kentucky
What happens if you are injured while you are at work in Kentucky? Injuries on the job can often be quite serious or there may be a repetitive type injury which makes an employee unable to work for a weeks, months or even longer. Who provides coverage for your medical expenses and lost wages in these cases? The costs of medical treatment alone can put your family into a serious financial challenge. Kentucky workers compensation benefits were designed to address many of these challenges.
Unfortunately, many Southwestern Kentucky injured workers have discovered the process of applying for workers compensation and seeking approval for the benefits to which you are entitled can be quite difficult. Employers may try to steer their employees to a specific doctor who may not properly or fully diagnose a worker’s injuries. Many employees are shocked to discover their own employers and insurers may actually be working to prevent them from receiving the workers compensation benefits to which they are entitled.

Who Qualifies for Kentucky Workers Compensation Benefits?
If you have suffered an injury on the job or have a disease as a result of occupational exposure, then you may be entitled to workers compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation claims in Kentucky are very complex and have specific rules which must be followed. The failure to completely and accurately complete all forms and submit properly worded medical documentation can and will jeopardize your entitlement to lost wage benefits and medical benefits.
Like social security disability, Kentucky workers’ compensation cases are complex cases, fewer attorneys handle these types of claims. Because of the complex nature of these claims, it is imperative that the injured worker have an attorney who is familiar with the process. The Roberts Law Office can take immediate actions early in process which can drastically effect and improve the ultimate value of the claim. Workers compensation claims have special proof elements that other claims do not have. Attempting to file these claims on your own or working with a lawyer who is not thoroughly familiar with those proof elements can result in a claim being dismissed and the injured worker losing valuable benefits, including lifetime medical benefits for the work injury.
