Are all on the job injuries in Kentucky covered by workers’ compensation?
Most all the job injuries in Kentucky are covered by the Kentucky worker's compensation laws. However, it's important that you find an experienced attorney who handles worker's comp cases to determine if there is any third party liability. That is, if a third party who is not affiliated with your employer causes your injuries, you may be entitled to other damages that are not covered under the Kentucky workers comp law. This includes pain and suffering and income benefits that may otherwise not be recoverable under the Kentucky worker's comp laws.
