Both work-related physical injuries and psychological conditions (if due to physical injury) may qualify for benefits under the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Act. Not all injuries are obvious at the time of the initial trauma, but develop over time and are called cumulative trauma injuries.
If you have suffered a work-related injury, the law provides the following benefits:
For you to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must report your workplace injury to a supervisor as soon as is practicable after the injury occurs, or after you are told by a physician you have suffered a cumulative trauma injury, which was caused by your work activities.
Workers’ compensation claims are extremely time-sensitive. If you do not file your claim within the two-year statute of limitations, you may lose your right to collect workers’ compensation benefits.
Thus, it is important you act quickly if you have been injured on the job. If you believe you have suffered a work-related injury and would like to discuss your right to benefits, please contact our Kentucky workers’ compensation lawyers today.
