Many Kentuckians support their families by working in factories, on job sites, in hospitals and in other hard-working areas.  If this describes you, you already know what it takes to bring home a paycheck.  When you’re injured on the job, your company is supposed to stand beside you.

On-the-job injuries can be relatively minor to extremely serious – and sometimes fatal.

  • Sprains and muscle pulls
  • Torn ligaments
  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Respiratory problems (including those caused by chemical exposure)
  • Crushes and limb amputations
  • Head injuries and death

Unfortunately for hundreds of men and women each year, they realize that things can change quickly once an injury occurs.  Co-workers and managers start pointing fingers.  Everyone seems to be dodging the blame.  Companies might try to force you to see the “company doctor” for your assessment and treatment.  You might be told your accident wasn’t really that bad.  It shouldn’t be this way.

Hessig and Pohl handles Kentucky worker’s compensation claims because we believe someone should stand by you.  The forms involved, the run-arounds you encounter, the lack of communication and support you need make it even more difficult.  All you want to do is receive coverage for the injuries you received.  You want the treatment you need to help you heal properly.  And most important, you want to make sure your bills get paid while all of this is happening.

Workers’ comp claims can be denied.  Employees are often forced to fight for the coverage they deserve.  You don’t have to fight this alone.  You deserve better.

Companies are supposed to provide ongoing training and provide proper equipment so you can avoid being injured.  Unfortunately, in an effort to make a profit, some companies cut corners and skip important steps.

Specific training, safety meetings and proper equipment is supposed to keep you safe.

Safeguards are put in place to avoid the need for an employee to file a workers’ compensation claim.  Even so, we know that doesn’t always happen.   That’s probably why you’re reading this page.
