There are too many ways you can be injured at work to list here, but there are several types of workers compensation benefits available to those who are injured at work in Kentucky or Indiana, and you might also qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits as well. This includes:
Lost Wages During Your Recovery. Injured workers are entitled to recover part or all of the wages you would have earned if you had not been injured at work.
Medical Costs. The cost for your trip to an urgent care, emergency room or hospitalization as well as visits to your doctor and any specialists should be covered. This will include occupational retraining or physical therapy treatments as well as the cost of any prescription medication associated with your injury.
Reimbursement for mileage. It costs to travel to and from the various offices of medical professionals and therapists and to pick up prescription medications associated with a work injury. Our attorneys may be able to help you to recover reimbursement for the expenses associated with these trips.
Temporary disability. It may take a while to regain full use of your arms, legs, fingers and other parts of your body after a work-related injury. You are entitled to workers compensation benefits when you are temporarily totally disabled and cannot return to work. The laws in Kentucky and Indiana differ when the disability is temporary and partial. The attorneys at The Jennings Law Office will help you to understand your benefits and work to ensure you receive the maximum benefits you deserve.
Permanent disability. When an injury at work results in permanent disability you really need to speak with the experienced lawyers at The Jennings Law Offices. Permanent disability will change the work you are able to perform, or prevent you from being able to get any form of work in the future. Both Kentucky and Indiana provide extensive benefits to those with Permanent Partial Disability or PPT or Permanent Total Disability or PTD.
Temporary and permanent disability benefits differ by state in Indiana and Kentucky, and it is important to have an experienced workers compensation attorney to represent and protect your interests.
Disfigurement. If a work injury has left you permanently scarred or disfigured or you have lost limbs or digits on your hands or feet, we can help. You may qualify for additional benefits due to the job duties violating a safety rule or regualtion.
Social Security. If you are disabled and unable to return to work you may qualify for Social Security benefits in addition to your workers compensation benefits. The experienced Social Security and workers compensation attorneys at The Jennings Law Offices can handle all of these claims. We work to ensure you receive the maximum benefits you are entitled to under Kentucky and Indiana law as well as Social Security Disability Benefits.
Death Benefits. If you have lost a family member or someone you love as the result of a workplace injury, we invite you to immediately contact the experienced wrongful death attorneys at The Jennings Law Offices. We will work to ensure the Estate receives the appropriate death benefits and the surviving spouse and dependent child or children receive the maximum possible compensation for survivors.
