Workers Compensation Attorney Upholds Injured Workers Rights
A workers compensation attorney protects the legal rights of people who have been injured on the job or exposed to an occupational disease arising out of and in the course of their employment in Liberty, Kansas City, Blue Springs and Independence, MO.
Regardless of the circumstances and the status of your claim, you are entitled to obtain a workers compensation attorney. Importantly, if your injuries resulted in permanent bodily impairment, you need a workers compensation attorney who can help to ensure that you receive the medical care, benefits and financial compensation you are entitled to. Furthermore, if your injury changed your ability to perform your job, or prevents you from working permanently, a workers compensation attorney can assist you with filing for Social Security disability benefits.
Workers’ compensation is a complicated area of law covering everything from Employee Labor Rights to the current Work Injury Compensation Act (WICA) and even Federal Employees Injury Compensation (FECA). Employers, advocates, and insurance companies have put forth a lot of misinformation regarding the numerous state and federal laws governing disabled workers, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This is, in part, why some people don’t bother to report their injury or file a claim because they think it’s pointless and they won’t be successful. Also, many worker’s don’t want to go through a long, drawn-out, frustrating process and all that it entails. Hiring a workers compensation attorney can shield you from much of the negativity and anxiety of pursuing a claim.
Workers compensation cases have their own court system with their own judges, policies, procedures and hearings.
When you have on-the-job injuries, it is vitally important to find a workers compensation attorney who specializes in this type of law – sooner rather than later. This will vastly improve the likelihood that you will receive everything you are entitled to – such as payment of your medical expenses, lost earnings, long-term care, rehabilitation and more. In addition, depending on the severity of your injuries, you may be entitled to a permanent partial disability award.
Pursuant to RSMo§ 287.010, your employer and the Division of Workers Compensation must provide the services you are entitled to.
