Workers’ Compensation

The Winton & Hiestand Law Group is here to help the workers of Kentucky protect their rights when they have been injured on the job. We will make sure that you receive all of the medical care and benefits that you deserve.

Kentucky has a comprehensive workers’ compensation law that covers workers for injuries which occurred in Kentucky or for Kentucky employers while in another state. Employees in Kentucky have a right to see their regular physician and not the doctor that your employer and its insurance company send you.

While off work by your physician, employees may be entitled to claim a portion of their wages be paid immediately as well as final compensation for any permanent impairment that you have suffered.

And if your injury is the result of the negligence of someone other than your employer, you may also have a right to pursue a third party claim for additional damages and remedies.

Benefits available under the Kentucky law include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Disability benefits
  • Rehabilitation and retraining
  • Lost wages related to the injury and retraining
  • Death and burial benefits
