Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer would like to thank Scott Borders for his years of service to the law firm and congratulate him on his appointment as a judge on the Kentucky Workers’ Compensation Board.

Roy Collins, managing partner of Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer, said, “We hate to see him go, but understand it’s a move that not only secures his well-earned retirement but also will allow him to apply his years of experience to ensure that injured workers and their employers receive fair administration of justice.”

Judges on the Workers’ Compensation Board are appointed by the Governor of Kentucky with the consent of the state Senate to serve four-year terms.

Scott has more than 30 years of experience handling workers’ compensation cases. He has worked as an insurance defense lawyer, as a plaintiff’s attorney in our Lexington office representing injured workers and as an administrative law judge. He previously served 14 years as a Kentucky workers’ compensation administrative law judge making decisions about people’s claims.

Scott has lectured on workers’ compensation at legal seminars and completed training from the National Workers’ Compensation Institute and the International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions.

He recognized the importance of helping regular people who are going through tough times because of work-related injuries. As a plaintiff’s attorney, he brought strength and experience and Kentucky Courage to each case he handled.

The kind of legal representation Scott provided clients is epitomized by the comments of former client Debbie Tucker, who offered a public testimonial about our law firm that is on our website

“I would wholeheartedly recommend the firm of Morgan, Collins, Yeast & Salyer to anyone needing help navigating the workers’ compensation system,” Tucker said. “I would most definitely recommend my amazing lawyer, Scott Borders.”

“As I sit here waiting for the phone to ring telling me it’s over, I can’t help but think how blessed I have been to have y’all in my corner.”

Scott earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Kentucky College of Business in Lexington and received his law degree from the Northern Kentucky University Salmon Chase College of Law in Highland Heights.
