Every individual who is injured in the course of performing their job deserves fair compensation. Unfortunately, not everyone gets it.
At Schmitt Mulhern, LLC, our workers' compensation attorneys in Kansas City are dedicated to fighting for injured workers' full and fair compensation. We also ensure that our clients' rights are protected throughout the process of claim evaluation, collecting benefits and receiving medical treatment.
Many employees in Missouri and Kansas are not fully aware of their rights and do not receive the full benefits they deserve through their employer's workers' compensation insurance. They are also unduly influenced to see only the physician their employer recommends. They may even be denied benefits or have their benefits halted prematurely.
Depending on your situation, you may be entitled to further compensation, which may be obtained by filing a personal injury claim or by appealing your workers' compensation claim denial.
We Secure Your Full Benefits For Your Workplace Accident Injuries
Unfortunately, many workers are hesitant to file a workers' compensation claim, fearing they will upset their employer or perhaps even lose their job.
Workers' compensation insurance is carried by most employers, for the purpose of providing benefits to those who are injured at work. However, if your claim is denied or you do not receive the full extent of benefits you deserve, it is necessary to consult with an experienced lawyer.
Securing workers' comp benefits may be a complex process. When your claim has been denied, it may become necessary to file an appeal. At Schmitt Mulhern, LLC, our lawyers are available to help ensure all documents are properly completed and that you have all of the information necessary to get the benefits you deserve.
Our lawyers are among the most respected trial lawyers in Kansas City. When we are representing your case, our over 75 years of combined experience in this area of the law is a message to your employer and the workers' compensation insurance company that you intend to aggressively pursue and secure the full and fair workers' comp benefits you deserve.
Kansas City Workers' Compensation Firm Working For You
Employees who are injured at work often face substantial medical expenses. In many cases, injuries are significant or even disabling, preventing an employee from working for an extended period.
Our attorneys believe workers who are injured in the course of performing their job duties should not suffer undue financial burdens. Workers' compensation and personal injury laws are designed to protect employees in such circumstances as on-the-job injury and work-related injury.
You may be eligible to collect workers' comp benefits whether you were injured at your workplace, at an offsite company function or driving between work-related activities.
We will work closely with you to understand the specific facts of your work injury and determine the most effective legal strategy: filing a personal injury lawsuit or appealing a workers' compensation claim that has been denied.
