Kansas City Workplace Injury Attorney
Have you been injured in a workplace accident?'
Though workplace accidents occur in all industries, they occur more often
in jobs that involve physical labor.
Construction accidents, heavy machinery accidents, and manufacturing accidents are among the
most common. Workplace injuries often cause both physical harm and emotional
trauma, resulting in a worker who is not able to perform his or her job
for weeks, months or sometimes permanently. Most injured workers receive
compensation for their injuries under
workers' compensation insurance.
Sometimes there may be instances where your employer has been extremely
negligent, and those actions or inaction caused your injuries. There may
also be "third parties" such as equipment manufacturers, contractors,
sub-contractors, property owners and drivers whose negligence contributed
to your being hurt. If this is the case, you have the legal right to pursue
damages against these parties, over and above any monies you have received
from workers' comp benefits.
A skilled Kansas City personal injury lawyer from Meyerkord, Russell &
Hergott will thoroughly investigate your case, find any additional persons
who may be responsible, and file a claim against them on your behalf.
