Unfortunately, some employers view injured workers as a liability, undertaking actions to force them to return to work before they are ready, or denying them treatment and benefits altogether. When you get hurt on the job, obtaining fair treatment and a reasonable outcome in a workers' compensation case can be very difficult without an experienced workers' compensation lawyer on your side. With over 90 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at Barnett Law Firm, Chtd. are committed to providing knowledgeable, responsible and dedicated service to clients facing workers' compensation disputes.
We use our extensive experience as workers' compensation attorneys to aid injured workers in both Kansas and Missouri reach their maximum medical improvement by helping them get the treatment they need. We also work to help them get the temporary and permanent monetary compensation they are entitled to due to their work injuries. Our skilled attorneys are on your side every step of the way, from filing your initial claim for compensation to trying your case in front of an administrative law judge and, if necessary, appealing your case to a higher court.
In many cases, the extent of a worker's injuries are so severe that he or she may also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, or may be eligible for Medicaid benefits. Our attorneys are experienced in managing all concerns related to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and will work to ensure that you receive all of the benefits you are entitled to.
Our attorneys have a clear understanding of what it takes to effectively handle your case and obtain for you the treatment and compensation that you are not only entitled to, but also that you deserve.
