Kansas Workers’ Compensation

The workers’ compensation system is designed to provide medical benefits and lost wages for employees injured on the job. Fault is not an issue in workers’ comp cases. After an accident, it is important to report your injury to your employer right away.

Workers’ compensation is governed by Kansas state statute and navigating the process involves meeting a series of formal legal and procedural requirements. Failure to meet these requirements in a timely manner can jeopardize your claim.

Attorney Charles E. Whitman has helped many clients understand their rights and benefits, and he draws from over 35 years of practice experience in handling every case. Working with an experienced lawyer is important to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled. Rely on us to be your zealous advocate throughout the process.

Avoid Common Pitfalls and Protect Your Rights

The workers’ compensation process is an adversarial one. The insurance company’s interest is in paying you as little as possible, not protecting your best interests.

We represent clients at every stage and will effectively resolve any disputes that arise, including:

  • Your employer and their workers’ compensation insurance carrier deny that your injury occurred in the course or scope of your job.
  • The insurance company stops paying benefits because the company doctor claims you are ready to return to work when you actually are not ready.
  • You do not receive proper medical treatment.
  • Your disability rating does not reflect the level or extent of your true impairment, affecting the level of temporary or permanent benefits you receive. We will hire medial and vocational experts as needed to challenge the rating.

After a Workplace Injury, Seek Legal Counsel Quickly

If you have been injured at work, it is critical to contact an lawyer as early as possible in order to steer your case correctly from the beginning. You will pay no legal fees unless we secure benefits for you.
