When you are injured on the job, your employer or site manager may jump right on the incident and try to ensure you are okay and file all the proper paperwork. Your employer is required to pay you workers' compensation benefits for any injury you incur on the job. However, there is a chance that they may try to avoid taking care of the situation and leave you by the wayside.
Additionally, if your injuries were caused by another third party, you may be entitled to additional benefits. You should consult with a Louisville workers' compensation attorney from Bahe Cook Cantley & Nefzger PLC to discuss your options. Call us at (502) 565-0035.
The laws of workers' compensation coverage can seem very confusing, but our Louisville workers' compensation attorneys are happy to answer all of your questions. Workers' compensation is intended to cover your medical bills and all related expenses to your injuries, as well as lost wages.
Depending on the severity of your injuries and whether you are able to go back to work soon or at all, this may include extended payments. Your employer is responsible for ensuring you get the care you need and that your medical expenses are covered due to the injury you incurred in the workplace.
Your employer is expected to provide a safe workplace for you and when they fail, we are here to investigate why. We work hard to recover fair compensation for our clients injured in the workplace in Louisville and Kentucky.
