Fort Campbell Workers’ Compensation Attorney
REPRESENTING THE INJURED IN WESTERN KENTUCKY
Kentucky workers’ compensation is an insurance program that provides benefits if you are unable to work due to work-related injury or disease. However, many injured workers are not treated fairly when they apply. It sometimes takes a lawyer’s help to receive the benefits you deserve.
I am Kenneth Haggard, a workers’ compensation lawyer in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. If you have been injured at work in western Kentucky, I offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and let you know what you can expect.
HOW DO I FILE A CLAIM FOR WORKERS’ COMPENSATION?
If you are injured on the job, you need to provide prompt notice to your employer. You also need to receive proper medical care. During your free consultation, I will guide you through the claims process.
WHAT BENEFITS WILL I RECEIVE?
Kentucky workers’ compensation provides three main benefits:
- Medical care for the injury for life
- A weekly benefit check for as long as you are temporarily disabled while you recuperate
- A lump sum settlement for any disability that remains after you reach maximum medical improvement
If you are physically unable to return to your old job, you may be eligible for retraining benefits.
WHAT DO YOU CHARGE FOR REPRESENTING ME?
My fee as your lawyer will be 20 percent of your lump settlement benefit, as provided under Kentucky law.
WHAT IF MY EMPLOYER FIRES ME?
It’s not unusual for employers to retaliate against employees who file workers’ compensation claims. As your lawyer, I will sue any employer who wrongfully retaliates against you for filing for workers’ comp benefits.
