We have represented employers in literally hundreds of cases before the Kentucky Department of Worker’s Claims.
While the proceedings are administrative in nature and presented to an Administrative Law Judge rather than a jury, defending or prosecuting claims requires litigation skills in deposing witnesses, physicians and experts, applying the rules of evidence, and presenting arguments orally and by written brief.
Our firm litigates claims from the hearing level through the appellate process, recently obtaining a victory for employers from the Kentucky Supreme Court in August, 2015 in Garrard County Fiscal Court v. Camps, 2015 WL 4979840, which is a decision restricting the judicial expansion of concurrent employment, resulting in savings for employers across the state of untold sums.
Our workers’ compensation experience has also provided counsel to our firm’s personal injury clients that have lost family members in work-related accidents, helping them navigate the interplay between worker’s compensation benefits, wrongful death damages, and product liability.
Our breadth of expertise speaks for itself, and speaks effectively.
