Workers’ Compensation

Kansas City Workers’ Compensation Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers

From dangerous jobs like construction work to seemingly straightforward office tasks, there are countless workplace hazards that threaten American workers each day. Because of these hazards, almost every employer throughout Kansas and Missouri is legally required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, to account for any on-the-job injuries.

At DiPasquale Moore, we represent employees who have been seriously hurt on the clock, ensuring that they receive their rightful benefits after a workplace accident. If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied by the insurance company, we can offer more than 100 years of legal experience to fight on your behalf, and get the compensation you deserve.

Am I Entitled to Workers’ Compensation?

When you’ve been injured in the workplace, you are eligible to file a claim for workers’ compensation, regardless of whether your employer was “at fault” for your accident. While not every injury is covered — like those that are self-inflicted, for example — virtually any bodily harm sustained during your official working hours could make you eligible for coverage. In the state of Kansas, you can also file a claim for repetitive injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome, provided that it was directly caused by your job.

Here are some of the reasons an employer may deny coverage:

  • You injured yourself on purpose.
  • Your injury happened when you were away from the premises.
  • You violated workplace safety rules and procedures.
  • You were fighting at the time of the accident.
  • You were engaged in horseplay at the time.

Once you notice the injury, you should report it to your employer as soon as possible, and make sure to put it in writing. The deadline for notifying your employer is 30 days in the state of Missouri, and only 20 days in the state of Kansas. From there, your employer is obligated to immediately contact their workers’ compensation insurance provider and file a claim on your behalf. You may also have to visit a doctor selected by your employer to confirm your injuries.

Committed Advocacy for Workers’ Comp Claims

Although workers’ compensation is mandatory for most employers, they may still be unwilling to support you in an injury claim. Alternatively, the insurance company may deny your claim altogether — in fact, the vast majority of claims are initially denied. When that happens, you will need an experienced attorney to help you decide your next steps.

Our Kansas City workers’ compensation attorneys are passionate about helping injury victims get the compensation they need to rest and recover. Whether you’re facing a lengthy appeals process or dealing with a reluctant employer, you can rely on our vast resources and legal know-how to turn the tide in your favor. With a proven track record that boasts millions won on behalf of our clients in Kansas and Missouri, DiPasquale Moore is ready to fight for your needs.
