If you are injured on the job in Kentucky you can pursue a workers’ compensation case. If there is a liable third party you can sue that party/person for negligence. The difference in these cases is the type of damages you can recover. In a negligence case you can claim pain and suffering. A workers’ compensation case does not allow you to claim pain and suffering. This can be millions of dollars in difference. Speak to a personal injury lawyer if you were injured on a job and you might be able to pursue a negligence case.
