Endless Support After A Work-Related Injury Or Illness
Injuries, illnesses and employee deaths caused by work-related incidents can lead to concerns about financial security for affected workers and their families. Bills, medical expenses and funeral costs can add up quickly, leaving many to worry about how they will be able to afford everything without a source of income.
Our lawyers understand the confused state in which a work-related injury, occupational illness or wrongful death can leave victims and their families, which is why we provide endless support and guidance throughout the process of collecting workers’ compensation and death benefits.
At Blankenship Massey & Associates, Attorneys at Law, we don’t let a workplace injury, illness or death leave you lost and concerned about the future. We help you collect the fair compensation you are owed so that you can eventually get back to your life.
Timely Reporting Of Injuries And Illnesses Is Important
While some workplace injuries are obvious immediately after suffering them, some injuries take time to develop and may not exhibit symptoms for months or even years, such as back injuries or rotator cuff tears. Whether your injury or illness is acute or chronic, you should report your injury or illness to your employer as soon as you become aware of it, and then contact an attorney at our firm.
We can walk you through the process of establishing an accurate timeline of events and help you gather the documents that best support your compensation claim. We will make sure you fully understand your rights and that your employer is taking your claim seriously.
We Provide Guidance And Support When You Need It
Whether we’re handling a workers’ compensation or wrongful death claim, we can explain to you the exclusive remedy provided by the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Act and the benefits you may be entitled to, including: partial wage replacement, payment of medical treatment and training to restore you to suitable employment.
If your injury or illness leaves you disabled and unable to work, we can help you apply for federal disability benefits. If someone you love was killed in a workplace accident, we can walk you through the process of securing death benefits for yourself and any dependents to cover funeral and burial expenses along with future lost wages.
