Workplace accidents often involve a third party injury claim as well as workers compensation.

Workplace accidents and injuries can have serious consequences which have a permanent effect on the lives of you and your family. Kentucky has some of the most dangerous workplaces in the United States due to the nature of the work performed and the associated risks. This includes the logging and mining industries, railroad workers and construction workers.
The injuries sustained in these occupations often result in permanent injury which will affect the victim’s ability to earn a living in the future as well as their quality of life. These injuries may be the result of falls from scaffolding, ladders or a roof or falling objects or tools which were not properly secured by other workers on the site. Trenches may collapse, and workers are lost in fatal accidents in Kentucky every year involving electrocution, explosions or accidents involving heavy equipment at the site.
