Hi. My question is about the Kentucky WC, does anyone know if there is a fix payout for injuried employees who have the lost their spleen, the lost of movement on the right side of the body, lost of jaw function and lost of teeth, not to mention lost of memory.I'm not from Kentucky, Illinois myself where there is such a list from WC, my brother who was injuried in the line of duty as a Volunteer Fireman has suffered all these problems and much more. I know that Illinois WC has to make the person whole again by what ever means and when they can not they have to pay X number of weeks for the lost of body parts. It's been a long road with no help from anyone, have a lawyer their in KY, we are getting close to settlement time and I'm responsable for his choice, don't want to make a bad one for him. Please any advice would be great. He was given a 75% AMA rating, Have no idea if this is good or bad to be honest,and I'm taking him to a neuro to get his opinion on his brain function. Think that it's a crock too on how KY laws protect the Employer, not the Employee. That he can not sue The State of KY, the FD Department, or the fellow Employee who did this too him. Here in Illinois you bet, the State of Illinois would of been in civil suit along with the FD Department and the employee. What a change of life we have for only being a state away.
Thanks again for any advise.
