If you’re injured on the job, it can seem like everyone is against you. Your employer wants you back to work before you’re ready. Their insurance company fights you every step of the way and refuses to pay benefits. Sometimes even your health insurance company is fighting because they don’t want to pay either. In a work comp case, it is important to know your rights, understand all of your options under state workers’ compensation laws, and take steps to protect yourself.
In Missouri and Kansas, the majority of employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which provides financial compensation to an employee who is injured on the job. However, the process of making a workers’ compensation claim can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate. For instance, you may want to protect your rights, but are concerned about how your employer will react. You may want to get back to work as soon as possible, but worry about being able to perform your old job duties. You may be missing paychecks and concerned with how you will continue to make ends meet. At the same time, you might be overcome with paperwork and concerned about missing deadlines and statutes of limitation that can affect your ability to bring a workers’ compensation claim.
