Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy

Filing for bankruptcy protection is a serious decision often contemplated after the loss of a job from layoffs or serious workplace or personal injury, a divorce, an accumulation of uncovered medical expenses, persistant harassment from collectors, and from unrealized business expectations.

Personal Injury

After any accident, you are likely disorientated, confused and not sure what to do.  A police report will be prepared.  What should you say to authorities about the accident?  Insurance companies will be contacting you to sign releases and may request a recorded statement about the accident.  What should you say? Sometimes you may not feel the immediate onset of pain following an accident.  Should you see your doctor?

Laws both in Kansas and Missouri afford protection to workers exposed to an occupational disease or injured during the course of their employment.  Injured workers should immediately report the injury to your supervisor.  Failure to do so within 30 days may jeopardize your ability to obtain benefits.

Workers' Compensation

Print Email

Laws both in Kansas and Missouri afford protection to workers exposed to an occupational disease or injured during the course of their employment.  Injured workers should immediately report the injury to your supervisor.  Failure to do so within 30 days may jeopardize your ability to obtain benefits.  This notice should state the date, time and place of injury, nature of the injury and the name and address of the worker involved.  After reporting your injury, your employer should arrange for the necessary medical treatment and the filing of the reports with the Division.  Your employer or employer's insurer is required to provide medical treatment and care to cure and relieve the employee from the effects of the injury. This includes all costs for authorized medical treatment, prescriptions, and medical devices. There is no deductible and all costs are paid by the employer or its workers’ compensation insurance company.

While you are receiving medical treatment for your injury and if the doctor says that you are unable to return to work due to your injury(ies) or you are off work recovering from a surgery, you may be entitled to temporary total disability (“TTD”) benefits. "TTD" benefits usually are equal to 2/3rds of your average weekly wage and are not taxable.  If the doctor states that you can perform light or modified duty work and your employer offers you such work, you may not be eligible for TTD benefits. TTD benefits should be continued until the doctor says that you can return to work or when your treatment is concluded because your condition has reached “maximum medical improvement,” whichever occurs first.  Finally, if upon the conclusion of all reasonably necessary medical care you have an impairment or disability to yourself as a result of the injury, you are entitled to an award based upon the amount of impairment or disability suffered.  Your attorney can advise you and request a hearing before an administrative law judge to resolve your claim.  If you have filed a Missouri claim for compensation and have previously sustained any injury, you may have a claim for additional compensation against the "Second Injury Fund" for additional benefits.
