Workers’ Compensation

Kentucky’s workers’ compensation system is intended to provide financial support to workers who have been hurt on the job or who have been diagnosed with occupational illnesses. While such protections and support can be crucial to helping injured workers and their families recover, the system can be complex, especially for those who have never filed a claim before.

Additionally, given the various deadlines and requirements for pursuing workers’ compensation claims in Kentucky, it can be very challenging for some injured workers to successfully navigate the system and obtain the benefits they need and deserve.
