Prevention urged during eye safety month

One of the first things you do in the morning is open your eyes. You may rub them so that you can more clearly see the clock, turn on lights as you walk through your house and look in the mirror to assess your face and hair. Perhaps you read the paper or check emails while you eat breakfast, and you drive yourself to work taking note of the sky and the possibility for rain.

Seeking Social Security Disability for chronic migraines

Your employer's end of the workers' compensation program

In Kentucky and beyond, most employers are obligated to purchase insurance to provide benefits to workers injured on the job to help them offset medical bills, replace lost wages and cover other expenses associated with their conditions.

Farm equipment presents many dangers

In Kentucky, farming is a common and vital industry. If you work on a large farm, you may feel quite comfortable on a tractor.

Workers' compensation is not always a done deal

Fortunately, workers' compensation insurance covers these expenses so that employees can recover quickly and get back to work.
