Kentucky workers compensation is not a perfect system. It offers opportunities and loopholes for employers and insurance companies to exploit and harm workers and their families.  Here's one example: in a claim recently filed, the client had total knee replacement surgery that had been preapproved and cleared by the insurance company.  About a month after the surgery, the insurance company revoked its approval, refused to pay for the surgery and related expenses, refused to pay for the continuing physical therapy and stopped paying any temporary total disability benefits.  It will work out in due course but only after unnecessary and wrongful harm done the client.

One of the points from this article is the value to the client of having an experienced and skilled workers compensation lawyer.  Remember the money for the insurance companies and employers is in not paying your claim.
