Kentucky w/c ? also OSHA standards
#1
Is it true that you cannot sue your employer in KY if you accept w/c income claims?

2nd ?
What if it was an OSHA recordable that was caused by modifications to equipment by the company?

One of the purposes behind WC covereage, is to protect the employer from a civil law suit.

I am lost as to what your second question is. It could be due to my evening meds. Can you explain further??
8-05, Micro laminectomy/disectomy. 10-05 lumbar fusion L5-S1. 2-07 exploritory surgery. 12-07 medical implant, Spinal Cord Stimulator. now receiving SSDI. After going back to school, I received my degree as a mechanical engineer. What can I say, it was the only way I had to beat the system.

As I hear, even if you sue and if you have been getting wc payments. WC gets there money back.

Im sure someone who knows more about it will be along to answer.

Injured worker, & tired of it all! I'm too old for games!!

A careless word may kindle strife, a cruel word may wreck a life, a timely word may level stress, and a loving word may heal and bless!
