How do I get on-the-job after my accident?
After you have given notice of your injury to your employer, benefits arising as a result of the accident and sustained injuries must be provided within a reasonable time frame. According to Kentucky workers’ compensation law and companion regulations encoded for the Department of Workers Claims, failure to provide benefits in a timely manner is a violation of the law.
Once you notify your employer about your injury, they are required to provide you with a claim form. Fill out the form, sign and date it. Return the completed form to your employer. Only after submitting your claim will you be able to receive compensation benefits.
