After A Workplace Accident, We Can Help
After an accident in the workplace, you may be dealing with a variety of unknowns. How will you pay for your medical expenses? When can you get back to work again? All of these questions pile on the stress in an already difficult situation. Having a lawyer who will fight for you and your rights is crucial in this moment. Our attorneys at True Guarnieri Ayer, LLP, have over 130 years of combined experience. We have worked with clients throughout Kentucky who needed assistance with their workers’ compensation claim.
Understanding What You Are Entitled To
It’s important to know that you do not have to go to a big city to get quality representation. Our team of attorneys is committed to the members of this community. We fight tirelessly to get them what they are rightfully entitled to. In workers’ compensation claims, having a knowledgeable advocate by your side can make all the difference. After being involved in an accident, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. It’s also important to alert management and the company as soon as you are reasonably able to do so. This ensures everyone is on the same page.
Almost everyone in the state is covered by the workers’ compensation law. However, there are a few exceptions. This includes agricultural workers, domestic servants and true independent contractors. In general, however, employers are required to cover medical expenses and lost wages for job-related injuries. After a company receives notice of an injury, they are supposed to provide benefits within a reasonable period of time. Most people will receive two-thirds of their average weekly wage while they are recovering; however, this can vary case by case. We can clearly explain your options and help you decide how to move forward.

Even if you are somewhat responsible, you could receive partial payment. While you technically have two years to file a claim, it is best to do so sooner rather than later. This makes it easier for us to gather necessary documentation and evidence and build your case. To learn more about how we can help, call our office in Frankfort at 502-783-7662 today.
