It’s an overwhelming experience when you’re injured in a work-related accident. You might be suffering from emotional and physical trauma, lost work wages, large hospital bills, and disability.

The legal system is a complicated process, and many victims don’t know what compensation they are entitled to. This is why you need an experienced Kansas workers comp lawyer in your corner who has your best interests at heart.
Our Kansas Workers Comp Lawyers are Dedicated to Helping You Find Fair Compensation
“The financial burden of medical expenses can be so great that it makes it difficult to reclaim your life. This is especially true if your injuries keep you from working,” says Rob Lee, Kansas workers comp lawyer. “By winning the fair compensation you deserve, we help injured victims pay for doctor visits, surgeries, treatments, medication, therapy, counseling and other related expenses.”
This type of compensation helps injured victims pay for expenses during the recovery process. This might include physical therapy, re-training, or training for a different job if your injuries prevent you from returning to your previous line of work.
Lost Work Wages
Your compensation may also help you recover lost work wages (past and future). Temporary Total Disability is the most common type of disability. Your injuries currently prevent you from working, but you will be able to return after you are healed. Temporary Partial Disability means you can now only perform parts of your job. After recovery, you will be able to do your full job again. Permanent Partial Disability means you will only be able to do parts of your job in the future. Permanent Total Disability is when you are unable to return to work ever again.
“If you were financially dependent on a family member or spouse who was killed on the job, then a wrongful death claim may also be filed,” says Larry Gurney, workers’ compensation attorney. “In a workers’ comp claim, this compensation helps the dependent recover financial losses that would have been provided by the income of the deceased.”
