Below are some of the most common questions we hear when assisting injured workers in Kentucky and Indiana. For comprehensive answers tailored to your specific situation, reach out to us and schedule an in-person or phone consultation.
I applied for workers' compensation benefits and have been denied. What can I do next?
- Many of our clients come to us after they have applied for workers' comp benefits and been denied. We can review your original application, gather evidence and testimony to strengthen your claim, and help you navigate the workers' compensation appeals process.
How much is it going to cost to work with your firm?
- We handle workers' compensation and personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. This means that when you secure our services, you will not have to pay any attorney fees unless we secure compensation and benefits on your behalf. In most cases, expenses are also covered by the client's award or settlement.
Can I change doctors after seeing my employer's physician?
- In Kentucky, you are allowed to choose your doctor. However, in Indiana, you will be required to see the company physician. Jurisdictional matters in these cases can be complex, and our attorneys can help you understand your options.
Can I file a claim against another party other than my employer?
- If negligence on the part of another party (other than a co-worker or someone directly affiliated with your employer) contributed to your workplace accident, we can help you file a third-party lawsuit. It's important to note that you cannot sue your employer.
What is typically covered by workers' compensation benefits?
- Workers' compensation benefits typically include compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and if a worker is permanently disabled, permanent total disability benefits may be available. Our team of lawyers can work closely with you to determine the full-spectrum of benefits and compensation available to you.
