We understand the unique processes associated with workers compensation claims in the Organized Union environment and have worked to earn the trust of Kentucky and Indiana Labor Unions and their management for decades.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration or OSHA recently estimated that workers compensation only covers about 21 percent of the lost wages and medical bills encountered by injured workers and their families. Labor unions exist to protect their workers, and your union representatives want to make sure you receive the maximum financial benefits available to you under Indiana and Kentucky law.
This is why many Unions recommend working with experienced and proven partners of union workers like The Jennings Law Office. They know we will work to aggressively protect your interests and ensure that your claims are comprehensively prepared and submitted in a timely manner. We work to maximize not only the likelihood that your Indiana or Kentucky workers comp claim will be approved, but to ensure you receive the appropriate medical treatment and the maximum financial benefits you are entitled to receive.
If your Kentucky workers compensation claim is denied or you receive a denial letter from the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Board we can help.
