Filing for Workers' Comp in Kansas City

Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers

Workers' compensation was established to protect the rights and the health of injured workers, and also to protect employers from lawsuits. Unfortunately, workers do not always get all the benefits they are entitled to receive. Employers may be focused on their own bottom line than with the needs of injured workers. Insurance companies commonly take action to attempt to pay out as little as possible, and employ any number of tactics toward that end. It is an established fact that workers often do not receive full benefits without the help of an attorney.
