Compensation After A Workplace Injury

Certain lines of work are inherently more dangerous than others. Construction workers, for example, face the threat of serious injury every day. However, injuries can happen at any workplace, and can be devastating to any type of worker and their families. Workers' compensation is meant to help, but navigating the system can be incredibly frustrating.

With my law office in the metropolitan Kansas City area, I help the injured and their families at many stages in the workers' compensation claim process, from filing initial paperwork, to getting a second medical opinion, to hearings and beyond. I have been a lawyer for more than 25 years, and I have experience with issues such as:

  • Construction accidents
  • Repetitive strain injury
  • Workplace injury
  • Back injury
  • Shoulder injury
  • Neck injury
  • Head injury
  • Hand injury
  • Ankle injury
  • Hip injury
  • Eye injury
  • Hearing loss
  • Occupational illness

When you are my client, I work hard to help you through what can be a difficult process so that you can get the benefits you need and the justice you deserve.

Work Injury And Work-Related Illness

Workers' compensation laws are designed to provide benefits to workers who have been injured or made ill on the job. These benefits are meant to cover the costs of medical care and provide some income while the worker is unable to return to work.

Unfortunately, navigating the workers' compensation laws and system is often difficult. If you have ever had to file a claim, you know that insurance companies and employers may get in your way, or the medical care and benefits may be less than you need and deserve. It can make a big difference when you have help from an attorney with experience in workers' compensation law.
