When you’ve been injured at work, getting workers’ compensation benefits should be an easy and straightforward process. Unfortunately, a lot of injured workers end up losing out on the compensation they deserve because their employer and the insurance company put up barriers – all in an effort to cut their costs and increase their profits.
Let our law firm help you get back on your feet. Our Liberal workers’ compensation lawyers are caring, compassionate, and have a clear understanding of the workers’ compensation system in Kansas. That means we can represent you, fill out all the necessary forms, guide you through the process, and appear before the workers’ compensation board with you, if necessary. Let us handle your workers’ comp claim – and get real results.
What is workers’ compensation and how does it work?
Workers’ compensation is used to cover the cost of an injured worker’s medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs – provided the worker’s injury or illness is work-related. It can also provide death benefits to the spouse or immediate family of a worker who was killed in an on-the-job accident.
Every state has different workers’ compensation laws, but in Kansas most business owners are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance unless they have a gross annual payroll of $20,000 or less. In exchange, workers’ compensation follows a no-fault system that typically prevents an injured worker from suing their employer for sustaining a work-related injury or illness.
How can a workers’ compensation lawyer help you?
Getting the workers’ compensation benefits you need and deserve is often a challenge. Your employer and the insurance company might try to keep costs down and pay you out as little as possible by reducing or denying your benefits. They may challenge the severity of your injuries or illness, deny you certain medical treatment, or worse yet, say that your condition isn’t work-related. They also have teams of attorneys ready to fight for them and squash your claim.
Level the playing field with our Liberal workers’ compensation attorneys. Our dedicated legal team can handle every aspect of your workers’ compensation claim and build a strong case on your behalf that gets results.
If your claim is being challenged or denied, our workers’ compensation lawyers can:
- Collect medical records, safety reports, and other physical evidence to support your claim
- File an appeal on your behalf with the Kansas Workers Compensation Appeals Board
- Explore a third-party lawsuit (in certain cases)
If you sustained a work injury or illness, you’re most likely entitled to benefits under the Kansas Workers Compensation Act. Let our Liberal workers’ compensation attorneys protect your rights and help you get the most out of your claim.
