Our Kentucky employment law attorneys protect employees from discrimination and harassment based on age, race, disability, sex/gender or other factors, as well as from retaliation for filing a discrimination or workers’ compensation claim. Our comprehensive employment law practice includes wage claims and benefits including overtime pay and family and medical leave. Additionally, we serve as general counsel to small businesses, helping them with employment contracts and other matters to keep them in compliance with the law and positioned to avoid litigation or deal with it efficiently and effectively when it arises.
Kentucky workers’ compensation laws require your employer to compensate you when you have been hurt on the job, regardless of fault. A worker and/or his family may be entitled to payment of medical expenses plus weekly benefits while the worker is unable to return to work, and short-term or long-term disability from the accident. You can work with our attorney in bringing your workers’ compensation claim to your employer or a workers’ compensation board.
Personal Injury Law
When you have been injured by the negligent actions of another, the law provides you with a pathway to relief through personal injury law. In bringing a personal injury suit, an injured victim will have to prove that the defendant owed a legal duty, that the defendant somehow breached that duty by acting improperly, that this breach caused the victim’s injuries, and the victim has suffered damages as a result. Damages for which the plaintiff can seek recovery include medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and potentially even punitive damages. Our personal injury lawyer will walk you through determining who the proper defendant in a personal injury suit is, whether causation can be proven, and what kind of damages are available.
Wills, Estates and Probate
Probate is the process that transfers legal title of property from the estate of the person who has died (the “decedent”) to his or her proper beneficiaries. The probate process also provides for the collection of any taxes due by reason of the deceased’s death or on the transfer or his or her property. Additionally, it provides a mechanism for payment of outstanding debts owed by the decedent. Our probate attorneys assist the estate administrator or personal representative in all of these actions, including handling any litigation that may arise in the course of a probate proceeding. We are also available to advise clients on their estate needs and draft the necessary wills, trusts and healthcare directives to properly plan for the life of the testator and provide for future generations.
