Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Kansas

Compensation for Work Injuries in Kansas

Businesses in the state of Kansas are required to carry workers' compensation insurance. In order to receive benefits, the injured employee must file a claim with his or her employer. Because insurance companies are driven by profits, employees seeking workers' compensation are subject to insurance policies and procedures that frequently result in claim delays and denials. The employer's workers comp carrier will do everything it can to settle with a claimant for less than the case is worth. When you are depending on workers' compensation to help you pay for the treatment you need, we know how disheartening and frustrating to be offered inadequate benefits.

A Kansas City workers' compensation lawyer at Haight Stang, LLC can provide you with valuable legal advice regarding workers' compensation, and pursue maximum benefits for your injuries. We are experienced injury compensation attorneys that have worked for insurance carriers in the past, and know their "playbook." This gives us a unique advantage when representing clients that have been injured at work.

We can prevent you from falling victim to insurance company practices that can add unnecessary time to the processing of your claim and result in insufficient compensation. Our firm will discuss all of your compensation options, including filing a lawsuit against a third-party if their negligence contributed to your injuries.

Workers' Compensation Lawyer in Kansas

Have you been injured at work? Workplace accidents are a common occurrence, and can involve many different types of mishaps, including:

  • A fall
  • Tripping or slipping
  • Being hit by a falling object
  • Injuries caused by lifting or moving heavy equipment

An on-the-job accident can result in serious injuries such as head injuries, spinal cord injury, back injuries, neck injuries, hand injuries and brain damage. Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be unable to work for many months while you recover. Some accidents are so severe they cause permanent disabilities that can prevent you from ever working again. An employee that is injured at work can seek workers' compensation to pay for their medical expenses.

It is important that you choose an experienced workers' compensation attorney to represent your interests when filing a claim. Retaining the services of a knowledgeable lawyer can make a different in the outcome of your case and the amount of compensation you receive. Our firm has successfully represented many clients that have been injured while working, and will firmly defend your rights to compensation.
