WORK-RELATED INJURY LAWYERS IN LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY
It’s a sad reality that some employers knowingly or unknowingly subject their employees to unsafe working conditions. Unfortunately, when this happens, workers can suffer in more ways than one. From life-altering injuries that demand ongoing medical treatment to lost wages, workplace accidents can hurt employees physically, financially, and emotionally.
Many injuries that happen at work are simple accidents. In these cases, you may be able to obtain workers' compensation to alleviate some of the financial stress after you’ve been harmed. However, in limited circumstances, if you were injured because your employer knowingly exposed you to unsafe conditions or failed to take safety measures, you may be allowed to seek compensation by filing a lawsuit.
Moreover, if the negligence of a third party (a person or company other than your employer) contributed to causing your injury, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against that party—even if you’re also receiving workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.
Our office can help you determine whether you have grounds to file a lawsuit against a third party or even against your employer. If you do, you may be able to recover damages for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
