Kansas City Workers' Compensation
You don’t have to work in construction to get hurt on the job. In fact, workplace injuries happen across industries.
Workers’ compensation insurance is designed to provide income and benefits to employees when these incidents happen. In exchange, employers avoid legal liability.
There’s one problem: employers and their insurance carriers don’t always act in good faith. Sometimes they attempt to deny or minimize their employees’ benefits to save money.

Am I Eligible For Workers’ Compensation?
If you get injured or become sick on the job as a result of your occupation, you can file for workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, your employer or their insurance company might do all they can to avoid paying your claim. They might say that your injury wasn’t work-related, that it’s not as severe as it really is, or even that you’re not covered.
It’s important that you consult a workers’ compensation attorney to protect your rights and review your options. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Morgan & Morgan specialize in these cases and will stop at nothing to recover every penny you’re owed.
