Workers' Compensation Wages & Income Benefits

Lexington Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

The attorneys at Gilbert Law Group PLLC are skilled in injury and workers’ compensation law. We have more than 50 years of combined experience representing injured workers. Our firm can make sure you are paid correctly through workers’ compensation while a doctor has you out of work.

Lost Wages & Kentucky SSI Benefits

Our Lexington workers’ compensation attorneys submit all the necessary information to the insurance adjusters and review your pay records to ensure you are receiving the money due to you. We monitor your situation throughout the process, handle all the paperwork, and provide protection for you from harassing insurance representatives.

When a doctor says that you are at maximum medical improvement, we can help you look at settlement possibilities. If your injury results in a permanent disability, we can help you file for social security disability and supplemental security income (SSI) benefits, as well as submit a claim about your disability.

Kentucky Disability Income Benefits

These social security disability claims may be any of the following (as covered by Kentucky SSI):

  • Temporary total disability (TTD) - These benefits will provide you with two-thirds of your average weekly wage that you were receiving prior to your injury (with maximum and minimum amounts taken into account based on when your injury occurred).
  • Temporary partial disability (TPD) - If you are able to continue doing some work during your recovery period, you may still be eligible to reeceive supplemental income.
  • Permanent Total Disability Benefits - These benefits are awarded to workers who are unable to return to any type of work. They are awarded at the same rate as the TTD benefits and will be given to you until you reach the age of 70.
  • Permanent Partial Disability Benefits - The amount of supplementary income you receive for this type of designation will vary depending on the extent of your disability. The formula for determining this type of compensation is complicated and often requires the help of a professional workers' compensation lawyer.

Contact us today at (859) 594-7540 to discuss your income benefits with one of our Lexington attorneys. We also provide representation in obtaining compensation for medical treatment following your accident.

A Firm That Values Communication

Any offer that we get from your insurance company will be promptly shared and discussed with you. We work personally with you to effectively support you in your injury. Our goal is to get you the maximum benefit for your injury, no matter how small.

If your claim is denied because your employer does not acknowledge that your injury occurred at work, we prepare for trial. Our attorneys will walk you through all the steps in the litigation process so you understand your options. We also will litigate if the insurance company offers you an unfair settlement.

We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Get Paid

Our firm offers free initial consultations and works on a contingency fee basis. We don’t collect attorneys’ fees unless we secure workers’ compensation for you. You have nothing to lose by working with us. We will be the ally you need in your fight for appropriate compensation.
