Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Owensboro, KY - filling in Workers Compensation forms

Owensboro Workers' Compensation

Every employer in Kentucky is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance that covers the cost of a work-related injury or illness. When a worker gets hurt or sick on the job, this insurance is supposed to pay for their medical treatment and lost wages while they recover.

Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, which means that a worker does not have to prove negligence to receive benefits. Despite this, workers’ compensation claims are routinely denied. Having a claim denied adds insult to injury and leaves the injured worker scrambling to find help.

Kentucky employees have rights. These rights cannot be abridged by your employer or their insurance company. 

At Morgan & Morgan, our job is to make sure that your rights are protected, and that you receive the benefits you deserve. We’ve been fighting For the People, Not the Powerful for more than 35 years. Our Owensboro workers’ compensation lawyers are here to make sure your claim is approved.

  • How Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Help?

    According to the Commonwealth of Kentucky Labor Cabinet, most injured workers hire a lawyer to file a workers’ compensation claim for them due to the complexity of the claims process. A lawyer can help a claimant:

    • Complete the claims forms
    • Gather information, such as medical documentation, needed for a claim

    But if a claim is denied, the process gets much more complicated. The claimant will need to go through the appeals process, which can take many months to complete. At a minimum, your claim will be subjected to a benefit review conference and a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ). You may also need to appeal to the Workers’ Compensation Board and the Kentucky courts. 

    Morgan & Morgan can guide you through the appeals process and steer your case to the best possible outcome.

  • Can I Sue?

    Depending on how the accident occurred, you may be eligible for a third party lawsuit against somebody who is not your employer or fellow employees, such as a subcontractor on a construction site or the manufacturer of defective machinery. Third-party claims do not affect your eligibility for Kentucky workers’ compensation. 

    Our Owensboro office can explain all of your legal options during a free case review.

  • What Does it Cost to Hire a Workers’ Comp Lawyer?

    Morgan & Morgan believes that everyone should be able to afford a good lawyer. That’s why we work on a contingency-fee-basis: meaning, we only get paid if we win your case.
