Kansas City Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injuries & Workers' Compensation

An employee can suffer many different types of on-the-job injuries, including head injuries, neck injuries, back injuries, spinal cord injury, brain injuries, broken bones and burns. If you are injured on the job, a claim can be filed with your employer's insurance carrier for compensation.

Filing a workers' compensation claim with the help of a Kansas City workers' compensation attorney can be invaluable. A skilled lawyer will be able to bypass the efforts of your employer and insurance carrier to minimize your injuries and compensation. An injury attorney can also provide the effective representation you will need when seeking maximum workers' compensation benefits.

This includes accidents involving:

  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Company vehicles
  • Explosions
  • Fires
  • Falling objects

All businesses are legally required to carry workers' compensation. Benefits are paid to an employee who has been hurt at work without regard to who was at fault for the injury. This includes compensation for medical expenses, loss of income, permanent partial disability and permanent full disability. Workers' compensation is different than a personal injury claim, which must prove that another person's negligence caused the accident or situation that resulted in the injury. As long as workers' compensation is available to an injured worker, the employee cannot sue their employer for damages. A third party lawsuit can be filed however, if another entity was also at fault for your injury.
