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.
