Kentucky Workers Compensation Benefits
State law in Kentucky requires the majority of employers to carry workers compensation insurance, which is designed to protect you in the event that you are injured while working within the scope of your duties.
An injured worker in Kentucky is entitled to three (3) types of potential benefits:
Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to Temporary Total Disability (TTD) income, or Permanent Partial Disability (PPD) income.
We help you recover TTD benefits when you are taken off work by your doctor and are expected to make a full recovery.
PPD is awarded when the injury causes a partial or permanent disability, often affecting your ability to perform certain job functions.
No matter the type or size of the accident, workers comp insurance is required to fully compensate you for medical bills related to any injury that occurs while on the job.
In instances where the injury is severe, you may require a retraining period to help ensure you are able to perform the duties required to complete your job in an effective manner.
