Work injuries happen, in every profession, in every field. If you have suffered an injury while on the job,
our laws usually provide a safety net, so you do not suffer financial loss as a result of your physical or
psychological injuries.

Workers’ Compensation Laws

Kentucky and Ohio have statutory laws that provide “workers’ compensation benefits” for workers
injured on the job. In most cases, it does not matter who is at fault for the worker’s injuries. If you are
injured while working, you may collect lost wage benefits while you are off work and recovering from
your injuries. You are also eligible for medical expense benefits which cover the cost of your medical
bills generated for the treatment of your work-related injuries. Finally, you may also be eligible for
additional payment as a result of suffering a permanent injury. These laws are highly technical. Do not
try and navigate them alone. The lawyers at Roush & Stilz, P.S.C. have 20 years of experience handling
workers’ compensation matters. Call for a free consultation today or complete our confidential online

Third-Party Liability

Some work injuries occur on multi-employer work sites. We see this, typically, on large construction
projects. Work-related injuries can also be suffered while on our roads and highways, or anywhere
where someone who is not your co-worker causes you injury. In addition to seeking workers’
compensation benefits, the lawyers at Roush & Stilz, P.S.C. also evaluate the circumstances of our
client’s work-related injuries to see if someone other than the worker’s employer or co-workers were
the reason the injury occurred. If there is another party responsible for the work injury, you are allowed
to seek compensation from that party for the injuries suffered. This is in addition to any workers’
compensation benefits for which you are eligible. Our attorneys have successfully recovered “third party
liability” compensation for our clients and if the circumstances are right, we can do the same for you.

Work Injuries and Intentional Conduct

Thankfully, it is rare when your employer intentionally tries to hurt its employees. But occasionally, we
see a case where we need to evaluate whether an employer has intentionally caused an injury to a
worker. The law in this area is highly technical and only an experienced attorney can properly advise you
whether the circumstances of your injury were caused by intentional conduct. If your employer
intentionally caused your injury you may elect to proceed against your employer outside of the financial
limits imposed by workers’ compensation laws. If you believe your employer intentionally injured you,
give us a call or complete our confidential online form for a free consultation.
