Whether your job is on a construction site, a factory floor, behind a counter, or in an office cubicle, you work hard every day to support yourself and your family. You give it your all, and in return, you expect to be paid and treated fairly by your employer. That expectation of fairness applies not only when you’re punching the clock, but when you suffer an on-the-job injury as well. When you can’t work, you’re not making money. You need the resources to pay the bills while you’re laid up and the medical care that can help you recover and get back to work.
At Dixie Law Group in Louisville, our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys know how hard you work and how badly you want to be back on your feet and back on the job. We work just as hard to get you the benefits and support that you’ve earned and that your employer should pay.
Your Employer Can Add Insult to Your Injuries by Denying You Benefits
Like all other states, Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri have workers’ compensation systems in place designed to quickly get injured workers money and benefits without the need to file a personal injury lawsuit or prove that the employer was negligent or at fault for their injuries. These are benefits to which employees are entitled under the law when they suffer workplace injuries.
But the sad reality for many workers is that getting these benefits is often a struggle which adds insult, frustration, and anxiety to their injuries. Like all insurance companies, the insurer that provides workers compensation coverage to your employer wants to pay out as little as possible in claims. That means that they may challenge your right to receive benefits. They might assert that you did not get injured while on the job, that your injuries were preexisting, that they aren’t as severe as you claim, or otherwise don’t warrant the amount of benefits you are seeking.
We Get You the Workers’ Compensation Benefits You’ve Earned
When your employer is not holding up their end of the deal and ignoring their legal obligations, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who understands the complexity of workers’ compensation laws, rules, and regulations. You need a lawyer who knows how to get you the benefits you deserve and has the tenacity and determination to get the job done.
At Dixie Law Group, we fight passionately for the rights of injured workers in Kentucky, Illinois, and Missouri, helping them and their families receive benefits to cover:
- Lost earnings;
- Medical costs;
- Damages for permanent injuries (either total or partial);
- Vocational rehabilitation assistance; and/or
- Death benefits for the families of workers killed on the job.
Workers’ compensation laws largely prohibit injured workers from filing personal injury lawsuits against their employers for work-related injuries. But third-parties that may be responsible for a workplace injury can be held liable, such as the manufacturer of a dangerous machine or a driver who hits you while you are working. We will explore all potential claims against such parties in addition to securing your workers’ compensation.
