Physical work-related injuries and psychological injuries (if due to a work-related physical injury) qualify an injured worker for benefits under the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Act. Cumulative trauma injuries, which develop due to repetitive work and/or strenuous physical work, may also qualify.
Eligible injuries include, but are not limited to:
We represent injured workers in their workers’ compensation claims to help them obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to, including income benefits while off work, medical treatment, and benefits for any permanent injury and impairment, as well as vocational retraining.
There are two types of federal Social Security Disability benefits.
To qualify for Title II Social Security Disability benefits, an individual must have paid sufficient current quarters into Social Security, must have a medical condition preventing gainful employment and must not earn above the allowable income amount.
Supplemental Security Income applies when a disabled individual has not paid sufficient quarters into Social Security to qualify for Social Security Title II Disability benefits.
Numerous medical conditions may entitle you to Social Security Disability benefits, and include, but are not limited to:

Presenting evidence of the medical condition caused by the negligence is necessary to recover damages.
In addition to traffic accidents, individuals may be injured as a result of:
