What is workers’ compensation and how does it work?
Workers’ compensation is a type of mandatory insurance purchased by businesses that can provide compensation for a worker’s medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs in the event the employee suffers a work-related injury or illness. Workers’ comp can also provide death benefits to the immediate family of an employee who was killed on the job.
Workers’ compensation laws differ from state to state, but in Kansas most business owners are required to provide workers’ compensation insurance to their employees. In exchange, this protects employers from being sued by workers who get injured on the job or sustain a work-related illness.
How can a workers’ compensation attorney help you?
Insurance companies and employers have a lot at stake when handling a workers’ compensation claim. The insurance company wants to keep payouts down to increase profits, and the employer wants to keep their premiums low to avoid higher insurance costs.
If your claim is being challenged or denied, a workers’ compensation lawyer can:
- Gather medical records, safety reports, and other evidence to support your claim
- Help you file an appeal with the Kansas Workers Compensation Appeals Board
- See if pursuing a lawsuit against a third party is possible
If you suffered an on-the-job work injury, it’s important to remember that you have rights. Under the Kansas Workers Compensation Act, hurt workers are entitled to compensation.
