Benefits For Injured Workers Throughout Kansas City


The compensation package that an injured worker receives is determined by the severity of the injury and its effect on his or her ability to work. Various injuries are categorized in different ways under insurance policies to help determine what "severity" means in each case (i.e., loss of limbs, repetitive stress injuries, etc.) In the most severe cases, fatal injuries may result in compensation awarded to the deceased's loved ones.


Benefits may include compensation for:


Lost wages from being unable to work for a short period of time

Reduced earnings from long-term inability to work or the inability to return to the field in which you are trained


Expenses associated with medical care or ongoing physical therapy including mileage for traveling to and from medical appointments

Rehabilitative needs

Disability or permanent partial impairments


Our firm can help determine whether or not the compensation package offered reflects the full scope of consequences of a workplace injury. We have substantial legal resources that give our clients an advantage, and can help you get the independent medical examinations and financial analysis you need.
