Personal Injury Lawyer Kansas
Work Accidents, Injury, and Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Injuries sustained at work or work-related are almost always covered under workers’ comp. Workers’ compensation is no-fault, which means it generally does not matter who caused the injury. There are exceptions to this as explained below in third-party liability claims. However, if an injury is covered by workers’ comp, then the employee is limited to workers’ compensation benefits.

Without a workers’ compensation attorney, you may not realize that benefits include past and future medical bills, wage earnings, permanent injury compensation and death benefits. Pain and suffering are not included and can only be compensated for in a third-party liability claim.
Third-Party Liability Claims
In Kansas, an injured worker can seek additional damages for pain and suffering by taking action against a third-party other than the employer. This applies to situations such as medical malpractice in treatment of the injury, inspectors who fail to properly examine the employer’s work-safety and products liability claim against distributors/manufacturers of work equipment.
