At the law office of Peter J. Naake, I help residents across Louisville and the state of Kentucky seek compensation for work-related injuries and illnesses. I understand that accidents on the job can bring lasting physical and emotional consequences, which is why I aim to simplify the legal process for you.
In my 30 years of experience as a workers’ compensation attorney, I have successfully represented workers who are disabled and can no longer work because of an injury on the job through long-term disability claims, social security disability hearings, Kentucky Retirement Systems disability claims if you are a state worker or teacher, and the Workers' Compensation system. I regularly handle cases involving workplace safety violations, third-party negligence, auto accidents on the job, repetitive injury and work-related fatal accidents. You need to have an attorney who can provide services in all these cases at the same time, to achieve a secure future for you and your family, if your injury has caused you to become disabled.
My law office puts you first. Whether you have been involved in an accident at work or you have been diagnosed with an illness connected to your job, I will take the time to listen to your needs. After we meet in a free initial consultation, I investigate the factors concerning your claim and explain options while answering any questions you may have.
UNDERSTANDING WORKERS’ COMPENSATION
Workers’ Compensation is a system of state laws which requires an employer to pay for medical treatment, two-thirds of lost wages and compensation for permanent disability of an employee who is injured on the job.
Employers usually pay an insurance company to provide these benefits, much like you would have automobile insurance. These insurance companies know their rights and are experienced in managing the system to achieve their goals. You should know your rights, too. Every case is different, but in my 30 years of helping injured workers through this process, I have probably had a case similar to yours. I study the law daily and I know the doctors. insurance companies, judges and lawyers who will be involved in a Kentucky workers’ compensation claim. Of course, I am prepared to prove your case and argue it in front of a Judge, or settle it to your advantage. Workers' compensation law has been my passion for my entire legal career. You can have the advantage of an experienced and skilled attorney in your workers’ compensation case.
