Your Guide Through The Claims Process

If you've been injured in an accident at work, you may not be sure of the steps you need to follow to claim workers' compensation, or if you are even eligible. At the Law Office of Kimberly Humphrey, LLC, an attorney will guide you through the entire process, ensuring that you understand your rights to compensation and how the claims system works.

For more information on how we can help you to maximize the compensation that you receive and speed up the claims process, contact us to discuss your situation. We have helped many injured workers in Kansas City, Missouri, to quickly recover the benefits due to them, and we can do the same for you.

Report The Accident And Seek Medical Attention

It is essential to notify your employer of your injury as soon as possible and seek medical attention. Missouri is a no-fault state, which means that you are entitled to medical treatment paid for by your employer. If you are dissatisfied with the care provided by an employer-designated physician, or if you require specialized treatment, options are available.

Understand Your Injuries

You are entitled to compensation for any kind of permanent injury. A back injury sustained in a construction accident, for instance, may leave you unable to stand for long periods, run or bend as easily as you previously could. If you are unsure if your workplace injury qualifies, we can assess your case and tell you if you have a valid claim.

Exercise Your Right To File An Official Claim

As well as receiving medical benefits, you have the right to claim further monetary compensation for a work-related injury, regardless of who was at fault. An experienced lawyer from our firm can help you to understand your rights and the benefits you are entitled to.

If your employer disputes that you were injured at work, we can help you to avoid a denied claim by preparing an account of the circumstances of your injury, securing witnesses and documenting the environment in which the accident occurred.
