Understanding Workers’ Compensation In Kentucky
Employees often miss work, lose wages and become encumbered with major medical bills and related expenses when they suffer from an unfortunate work accident.
Fortunately, workers who are injured or suffer an occupational disease during the course of their job duties are entitled to recover workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits include but are not limited to:
- Medical care, including doctor visits, surgeries and physical therapy
- Lost wages, including either temporary or permanent disability benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation, for individuals who need assistance with job training
Death benefits are also available for family members who have tragically lost loved ones in workplace accidents.
