Workers’ Compensation LAWYERS
CROCKER LAW FIRM
WE HELP INJURED WORKERS
If you were hurt while working you might have a workers’ compensation claim and be entitled to medical benefits, lost wages, and disability payments.
If you are hurt while on the job, it is important to do the following things:
- Report the injury to your employer right away
- Tell the doctor how you were hurt
- If you can’t work due to your injury, get an off work statement from your doctor
- Review your case with a lawyer
There are many ways to be injured at work. We have clients who fell at work, who were injured using heavy equipment, and who were hurt lifting or pulling. If you are in a vehicle accident while working you may have both a worker’s compensation claim and a separate claim against the at-fault driver.
Keep in mind that not all workers’ compensation claims are caused by sudden accidents. Workers’ compensation claims include injuries and illnesses that develop over time like hearing loss, disease due to exposure to harmful materials, or repetitive use injuries.
At Crocker Law Firm, we have helped many people who have suffered injury or illness related to work. We will be happy to discuss your claim with you and never charge for a consultation, whether we meet by phone or in person.
What is a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
In Kentucky there is a specific set of laws and a special insurance system for work-related injuries. When you are hurt on the job the rules are different than when you are hurt anywhere else. Workers’ compensation laws define the claims process, the benefits that are available, the time limits, and the hearing process. If you are hurt at work it is important to work with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.
