We work with the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 89 and all unions to protect the rights of injured workers and are recommended by the union to handle Teamsters workers compensation claims. Kentucky workers’ compensation provides short and long term benefits for union members who are injured while at work, and in many cases, those who may not have clocked in but were driving to or from work or on the premises preparing to go to work.
Ched Jennings formerly served as a Commissioner for the Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims and has strong relationships with labor unions which will be an asset to your case. Our clients not only receive high-quality legal services, but also the support and resources they deserve.
There are many reasons why a workers’ compensation claim may be initially denied. There is no need to worry as we have represented thousands of workers who were initially denied workers’ compensation to help them receive the benefits they deserve under Kentucky or Indiana workers comp law.
If you have been injured as a Teamster Local 89 member and need the help of a highly recommended Teamsters workers’ compensation attorney we invite you to review the strong recommendations of our clients and contact the Jennings Law Offices or call (502) 583-3882 for a free consultation and case evaluation. Ched Jennings has worked with Teamsters officials and union members for decades. You can entrust your case to the firm who stands strong with Kentucky and Indiana Teamsters.
