Kansas City Workplace Accident Attorney
Contact DiPasquale Moore If You Have Been Hurt At Work
Thousands of workplace accidents happen every year, resulting in serious physical and mental harm. Since this type of accident occurs while an employee is under their employer’s care, federal legislation mandates that injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation.
While workers’ compensation can cover many injuries occurring during the course of employment, when the injury has been caused by the negligence of another person, workers’ compensation may not be enough. At DiPasquale Moore, our attorneys recognize that the payout for workers’ compensation is oftentimes poor and usually will not cover all of the expenses you may incur. That is where we come in.

Third-Party Liability in Workplace Accidents
Missouri workers' comp law generally protects employers from lawsuits when an employee is injured on the job. However, many workplace accidents are the direct result of negligence by a third party who is subject to the same rules of negligence and liability as other personal injury claims.
Third parties in workplace injury claims can include:
- Other drivers
- Machine and product manufacturers
- Commercial and residential landlords
If you have suffered from any workplace accident, you must act quickly. While an employer may encourage you to file for workers’ compensation, it is important that you explore all of your options. Do not forfeit your right to pursue damages in court and fight for your worker’s rights!
Will Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit Affect My Workers' Comp?
Depending on the circumstances of your case, filing a lawsuit against a negligent third party may impact the compensation you receive. Missouri subrogation laws allow your employer (or their insurance provider) the right to part of your personal injury settlement/award if they have already paid out benefits for medical treatment, lost wage, etc. This is an important factor that you should take into account when considering legal action.
At DiPasquale Moore, our goal is to help you receive the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries, whether that can be achieved through workers' compensation alone, a third-party injury lawsuit, or both. Our Kansas City work injury lawyers take into account all factors that may affect your case so that we can guide you to the best possible resolution.
