How our law firm can help you
You might think you don't need a lawyer if you get hurt on the job in Wichita in order to obtain workers' comp benefits. The reality is many claims are denied for many different reasons, including:
- Employer claims you're not hurt
- Employer disputes the severity of your injury
- Employer claims you had a pre-existing medical condition
- Employer claims you got hurt outside of work
You know what happened. We can help you set the record straight and present the facts to support your claim. We can also represent you in court and appeal your workers' compensation denial if necessary.
Don't wait to pursue your workers' compensation benefits. In most cases, you only have 20 calendar days from the date of your accident or injury to notify your employer. Otherwise, you might not get the workers' compensation benefits you deserve.
