We offer a free initial consultation to explain your options after a work-related auto accident. Please call 816-941-8949 to talk with a lawyer at our firm.
You are entitled to workers compensation if you were driving in the course of your employment.

Workers’ compensation provides benefits such as medical care and lost-wage benefits regardless of who was at fault. Speak to your Kansas City workers’ compensation lawyer today to learn more.
You may have a personal injury case if the accident was caused by someone else’s negligence. If the other driver was at fault, you can sue his or her insurance company.
You can recover compensation for losses not covered by workers’ compensation, such as pain and suffering, and loss of earnings that were not covered by workers’ compensation. Our Kansas City personal injury lawyers will maximize your recovery from both sources.
