What Happens When You Are Hurt On The Job?
Most people assume their employer will take care of them if they are hurt on the job. They also rightfully believe that their employer’s insurance company will pay them all the benefits they are entitled to receive under Kentucky law. Don’t be so sure.
Insurance companies will often do whatever they can to avoid paying people for workplace injuries. Some insurance companies will even try to deny claims, alleging that a work injury is a pre-existing injury or that the alleged injury happened someplace other than the workplace. As a result, many disabled workers find themselves with mounting medical bills and no income. A few even find themselves out of work after their employer finds an excuse to fire them.
Insurance companies don’t intimidate us. At the Slechter Law Firm, we understand how the laws work in regards to workers compensation in Kentucky, Tennessee and Indiana.
Injured On The Job? We Are Dedicated To Protecting Your Rights
Your employer cannot fire you or otherwise retaliate against you for filing a workers compensation claim. If your employer does fire you, we can help you file a lawsuit against your employer for damages.
Our lawyers can make sure you receive all the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to receive, including:
- Medical Care for your injury;
- Temporary Total Disability (TTD) benefits to replace lost wages;
- Permanent disability benefits (if you are totally or partially disabled from your workplace accident); and
- Vocational retraining if you lack the capacity to perform your old job.

The Slechter Law Firm has helped thousands of injured workers across Kentucky, including construction workers, coal miners, office workers and assembly line employees. We have helped people with all types of injuries, including back injuries, neck injuries, shoulder injuries, arm injuries, amputations, burns and carpal tunnel syndrome.

If we don’t win, you owe us nothing.* It’s that simple. If we are successful, Kentucky state law limits attorney fees in workers’ compensation cases to 20 percent of the first $25,000 in benefits, 15 percent of the next $10,000, and 5 percent of the remainder. Attorneys’ fees in workers’ compensation cases are capped at $12,000, regardless of how much we recover on your case.
