After a Workplace Accident, You May Have Options

We offer a free initial consultation to explain your options after a work-related auto accident. Please call (816) 307-0056 to talk with a lawyer at our firm.
When Is an Auto Accident Covered by Workers' Compensation?
You are entitled to workers compensation if you were driving in the course of your employment.
- Driving to a meeting
- Delivering products to a customer
- Traveling on company business
- Driving to a required work outing
Accidents that happen during your normal commute between your home and your regular place of employment are not covered by workers' compensation.
What Benefits Can I Receive from Workers' Compensation?
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.
When Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
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.
What Compensation Can I Receive from a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
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.
