An injury at work and being involved in a workers’ compensation claim can leave you with many questions, especially if you have never had to go through the claims process before. Will you employer and its insurance company take care of the medical bills? When will you be paid for lost time? What happens if you can't return to the job you were doing when you were hurt? While your employer and its insurance company have their own lawyers, doctors and nurses who provide them information, you're on your own. You may have questions that you don't feel can be answered by the insurance company or your employer, because they may not have your best interests at heart. You deserve to have your own legal advice and representation to guide you through the workers’ compensation process, and if necessary, other legal options like social security disability, a third party negligence claim or a disability pension claim.

“I was a CNA for a home health care company. After I finished an appointment at a patient’s house, I headed back to the office. On the way, I was involved in a car wreck with a school bus.
Peter handled my workers’ compensation case. Peter knows workers' comp law. I live in Lexington, but Peter was very accommodating. We sometimes met in Louisville, and sometimes he came to Lexington. He's very good with communication on the phone or with email. I feel he's there to really represent you. He's aggressive, but not cocky. I like that he's so personable. Peter gave me a good understanding of the overall process. He even calls to check in on me.
If there's one thing I'd want people to know, it's that Peter knows his craft. He stood his ground in court. Peter is patient and very detail-oriented. He's not scared to dig deep to find a way to prove his points in court. I'd recommend him to anyone who has a worker's compensation case. ”
I was a Customer Service Representative for a local document destruction company. My truck didn't have a lift gate. I blew out my back while lifting heavy bags into the truck for shredding. As a result, I had to have a spinal fusion of my L4 and L5 vertebrae. I originally contacted a lawyer, but it turned out she represented companies, not injured employees. She actually referred me to Peter Naake.
We were a little nervous, but Peter is so down to earth that we felt much better after our first meeting. He's extremely nice. We liked that he always explained things to us in layman's terms. One of the things I really appreciated is that when you call his office, you're calling his direct line. He never left us hanging. Peter made a point of always returning our calls, even if he was on the road.
My wife is a natural skeptic. She worries about everything. She went with me to meet Peter and immediately felt more relaxed. She always said that Peter is real assuring. She liked how proactive he was. We always received copies of communications and notes.
I’ve recommended Peter Naake to a couple other guys at my company. We’ve gone back to Peter for family wills and other issues. Even though I live in Shepherdsville, he’s my lawyer.
“I got injured at work. My union BA recommended I call Peter Naake. We had a lot of questions and concerns about our finances and paying our bills if I couldn't return to my job as a welder. He was extremely straightforward and always there for us. He was very quick to respond to the questions we had. One of the things we liked about Peter is that he explained everything to us in great detail. Peter’s confidence calmed us down and made us feel very comfortable. He’s extremely honest and down to earth. I’ve already recommended him to family members and a neighbor.
If you get injured on the job, you need someone who will help you get the best possible outcome. I’d highly recommend you contact Peter Naake as soon as possible.”
