Workers' compensation was designed to give workers a relatively easy way to collect for medical expenses, missed work and permanent disability caused by on-the-job accidents. Employers agree to provide their workers with insurance against accidents, and in exchange workers are prevented from suing their employers directly.
What workers' compensation does not cover and where our personal injury attorney can help you is situations where the carelessness of someone other than a direct employer (a "third party") resulted in a worker's injuries. In such accidents, workers' comp is almost never enough to fully compensate workers for their losses. By bringing a lawsuit against these nonemployer third parties, our firm can help make sure that our clients don't have to pay the price for someone else's carelessness.
While our firm does not handle workers' comp claims directly, we can determine if you can bring a lawsuit against a negligent third party. Call our Overland Park offices at 913-498-1911 for a free consultation.
