    • Inadequate worker training
    • Defective equipment
    • Failure to conduct inspections or maintenance
    • Exposure to toxic chemicals

    Industrial workers who run the highest risk of suffering a job-related injury are the ones who work on job sites which have poor safety policies in place or injured in a car or truck accident while at work.

    How To Get Compensation After A Kentucky Work Accident

    In the state of Kentucky, medical bills and lost income are offered to employees through workers’ compensation after an injury accident.  This means that regardless of who was at fault, the employee can resolve benefits.  However, benefits can be limited depending on how the accident occurred, which is why exploring all of your options for compensation with a lawyer who specializes in work accident cases can be beneficial.

    Although employees are typically unable to sue their employers for job-related injuries.  If an unrelated third party could be partially or fully responsible you may be able to file a personal  injury claim.  Third-party liability can come into play if, for example, an injury was caused by a vehicle accident.  Our firm represents employees injured while at work in a car or truck accident due to the fault of another.
