What if My Employer Tells Me I'm Not Covered by Workers' Compensation?
Kansas City Workers' Compensation Lawyers
For most workers in Kansas and Missouri, workers' compensation is there to pay for medical bills and replace lost wages if you are injured on the job. However, what if your employer says you are not covered?
At the law firm of Mayer & Rosenberg, P.C., our Kansas City workers' compensation lawyers offer a free and confidential consultation to review your situation and explain your options. Please call (816) 307-0056. Depending on the facts of your case, one of these options may be available.
You May, in Fact, Be Covered by Workers' Compensation
Employers sometimes mislead employers about the benefits they have. For example, just because you're an undocumented worker doesn't mean you aren't eligible for workers' compensation. Our Kansas City workers' compensation attorneys will determine whether you are eligible.
You May Have Other Disability Coverage
Over-the-road truckers, contractors, and other workers may be covered by private disability plans that provide similar benefits to workers' compensation. Our lawyers will review your disability plan and help you obtain all of the benefits you are due.
You May Have the Right to Sue Your Employer
If your injury was caused by your employer's negligence, and your employer does not provide workers' compensation benefits, you may have the right to sue your employer. Our workers' compensation lawyers in Kansas City will review your case and determine if your employer was negligent.
You May Have the Right to Sue a Third Party
If your injury was caused by a third party (someone who doesn't work for your employer), you may have the right to sue the third party for the damages you have suffered. Examples of third parties are equipment manufacturers and other drivers in car accidents.
