Employers and their insurance companies are always concerned about the cost of workers’ compensation claims. They try to do everything they can to keep those costs as low as possible. They do not usually protect an injured worker’s interests. They usually won’t tell you in Kentucky you have the right to pick the doctor you want to treat you, and you do not have to go to the company doctor.

Free medical treatment is an important part of Kentucky workers’ compensation claims. If your treatment has been denied, we can file a medical fee dispute to obtain that treatment for you.
If you are not being paid for being off work, we can file a claim to get you money for being off work.
