Compensation For Injured Workers In Kansas City

When you go to work, you do not expect to get hurt. Workplace injuries are a devastating occurrence that can significantly strain your financial security, health and well-being. If you are injured on the job, depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be forced to stop working. Medical bills for your injuries may also result, which can cause financial suffering.

Workers’ compensation laws are difficult to understand, and workers’ compensation claims are difficult to file. If you have suffered a workplace injury, retain a workers’ compensation attorney to guide you through the process to ensure you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to. At Yonke Law LLC in Kansas City, we have more than 20 years of experience representing clients in claims involving injuries at work.

Our lawyers can help you through every step of the workers’ compensation process. If appropriate, we can also represent you in a third-party liability claim to increase your compensation award.

Workers’ Compensation Law

Under workers’ compensation law, if you are injured on the job, your employer is responsible for paying your medical treatment and other damages. Most employers are required by law to have a workers’ compensation insurance plan in place to cover employees in the event of a workplace injury.

Workers’ compensation insurance provides financial coverage for most workplace injuries. Although workplace injuries are commonplace on construction sites, workplace injuries can occur on any job in any profession.

An employee may recover workers’ compensation benefits for slip-and-fall accidents, repetitive motion injuries, amputations, lifting injuries, etc. An employee who is injured on the job is entitled to certain benefits, including long- or short-term pay, disability benefits, and the costs for medical and post-medical treatment (physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc.). In the event that an employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, an injured employee may still be able to recover damages from the employer.
