Our lawyers work hard for you
The rules and regulations governing workers’ compensation in Kansas can be confusing. If you make a mistake anywhere along the way in the application process, you could miss out on your opportunity to receive the financial compensation you deserve.
Getting the benefits you deserve can sometimes be a challenge. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company will likely decide whether you are eligible to receive such benefits. Sometimes, they might claim that you’re not really hurt or that your injury occurred outside work.
Then there’s the deadline for applying for workers’ compensation. In Kansas, you only have 20 calendar days from the date of your accident or injury to notify your employer. If you miss that deadline, you might not be able to obtain the benefits you deserve.
