Rodger W. Lofton Attorney at Law

Paducah, KY Disability & Injury Lawyer

When Experience Matters.
Rodger W. Lofton has over 40 years experience representing injured people and those with disabilities.

The law office of Rodger W. Lofton, located in Paducah, Kentucky, represents clients in the following types of cases:

  • Workers’ Compensation Claims
  • Personal Injury
  • Automobile Accidents
  • Jones Act
  • Social Security Disability Claims

If you are injured on the job, you are probably entitled to KY workers’ compensation benefits. Dealing with workers’ compensation insurance carriers can be very difficult. Therefore, it is beneficial in many instances to talk with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.

In my Paducah personal injury practice, I often represent clients who have been injured in car wrecks and accidents involving trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles. Often I represent people from out-of-state traveling on Interstate 24 and other Kentucky highways on their way to a vacation spot.

Working on the river is an especially dangerous occupation. If you are injured while working on any of the navigable waterways, you may have a claim under the Jones Act, which allows employees to recover damages for injuries caused by their employer’s negligence.

To schedule a free consultation, contact me today.

All injury and disability claims are handled on a contingency fee basis, which means a percentage of the damages recovered and court costs.

Practice Areas

Workers' Compensation Law

Unfortunately, workplace injuries are common. Kentucky allows workers who have been injured on the job to receive benefits for temporary and permanent injuries. If you have been injured on the job, you would be well-advised to speak with a KY workers’ compensation lawyer to learn of the benefits you may be entitled to receive.

Automobile Accidents

Have you been injured in a car wreck? If so, you may be entitled to compensation, including medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, and pain and suffering. As an experienced personal injury lawyer, I can help you get the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Jones Act

If you work on a towboat and are injured on the job, you may be entitled to benefits under the Jones Act. Your compensation can include damages for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and impairment of earning capacity. Contact us today to discuss your injury with an experienced Jones Act lawyer.

Social Security Disability

A person may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits if he or she is unable to work and the disability is expected to last at least one year. A person does not have to have a workers’ comp claim to qualify for social security disability benefits.

Call to schedule a no-obligation consultation.

I sit down with you, in person, to discuss the nature of our claims and how best to proceed. If your case is accepted, I’ll handle your case personally and fight for the benefits you deserve.
