Coping With The Aftermath Of Serious Injury

A serious injury can affect your life and the lives of your loved ones in untold numbers of ways. You face pain and suffering, of course, but also enormous medical expenses. At the same time, you may lose income because you are unable to work as a result of your injuries.

When you are facing all these pressures, it is important to speak to an experienced lawyer to learn about your legal rights and options.

I represent the injured and their families in personal injury cases and workers' compensation cases, helping them recover the compensation or benefits they need, and that they deserve under the law. My law office, Geoffrey L. Schmidt, Attorney at law, is in Overland Park, Kansas, and I help people in the surrounding Kansas City metropolitan area as well as throughout both Kansas and Missouri.

Personal Injury And Workers' Compensation

Personal injury and workers' compensation claims both concern people coping with the aftermath of injury, but beyond that, the two areas of the law are very different.

Workers' compensation claims are for people who were injured in the course of their employment. An injured worker does not have to show that anyone was at fault for his or her injury, just that the injury is related to their work. Personal injury lawsuits are for people who were injured due to the fault/negligence or bad acts of another party. Examples of personal injury cases are car and truck accidents, bike or motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, construction accidents, dog bites, slip-and-fall accidents, medical and dental malpractice, and injuries due to defective products. In some situations, your injury accident may involve both a workers' compensation claim and a personal injury claim.

When I represent you, I learn about you and your case, identify your legal issues, and help you put together a plan to pursue and recover the compensation or benefits you are entitled. I keep you apprised of developments in your case, and argue on your behalf against insurance companies and other powerful adversaries in negotiations or at trial.
