Specializing in Workers' Compensation
Workers' compensation laws help protect people who are injured on the job. They are designed to ensure that employees who are injured on the job are provided medical care, payment for lost wages while temporarily unable to work and payment for impariment or disability caused by the injury. Workers' Compesnation is a no-fault system and is designed to protect injured workers and their families.These laws also provide benefits for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses.
Kansas, like most states, has its own version of the workers’ compensation statute, beginning at K.S.A. 44-501. Under that statute, employers are required to provide workers compensation insurance; then, when an employee is injured, the employer has to report that injury to the Division of Workers Compensation and their insurer. Ideally, the insurance company then begins paying out workers compensation benefits to the disabled employee. In some cases, however, the insurance company will dispute that the employee’s claim is proper, sometimes by arguing that the employee failed to notify his or her employer of the injury within the statutorily-specified time limits or that their injury did not happen at work.
That’s why it’s best to have a qualified workers compensation attorney handling your claim from the very beginning. We will fight to ensure that your health, and the benefits you’re entitled to, are protected to the fullest extent of the law.
