When you’re out of work trying to heal after an injury on the job, it’s a vulnerable time in your life. You need confidence that your lawyer will help you get all the Workers’ Compensation benefits available, so you can get through this.
I take pride in bringing that confidence to my clients, using my 30 years of experience in Workers’ Comp law.
The Workers’ Comp system can be overwhelming if you’ve never dealt with it before, but I know it from inside out.
In fact, I spent 14 years as a Kentucky Workers’ Comp administrative law judge, making decisions on people’s claims. I know what judges are looking for, because I was one.
For a couple years, I defended insurance companies in Workers’ Comp cases. But you know what, that’s not as satisfying as helping regular people who need financial support when they’re going through hard times.
I’ve seen how much this can mean to you and your family, so I joined Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer in the firm’s Lexington office. Now I help individual claimants hold on to the lifestyles they’ve earned after job-related accidents and illnesses put them on the sidelines.
It takes Kentucky Courage™ to stand up to the system and fight for everything you’re entitled to receive. So I bring strength and experience to your case.
