Insurance Responsibilities in Kansas City

Workers' Compensation Insurance

When you have been injured on the job, it is vital for the survival of you and your family that you receive payment on your workers' comp claim with no delay and that you receive the full amount you are due. Your employer has a responsibility to work with you to facilitate your claim at several stages. First, they are required by law to obtain sufficient workers' compensation insurance to cover all employees in the company, as well as making information about the rights and benefits of the plan broadly available. If an accident occurs, your employer has to make it possible for you to receive emergency medical treatment on the job site, as well as gathering evidence and documentation of the accident.

If you have encountered resistance from your employer when you sought help in filing your claim, you should speak with a seasoned Kansas City workers' compensation attorney who can advise you of your rights and help you take action to move things forward. A company that is subject to the workers' compensation laws has a responsibility to not only make information available to the injured employee and the insurance company, but to work proactively to see that the claim for workers' comp benefits is paid. In too many cases, we have seen an employer cost the claimant a great deal of stress and frustration over delays in receiving a settlement, and if you are in this position we will fight to help you recover the money you need to get you through this period.
