Get The Benefits You Need To Recover

If you have been injured at work, you are legally entitled to certain rights, including the right to receive medical treatment paid for by your employer. Filing a workers' compensation claim can be an overwhelming task, however, and many injured workers neglect to file due to the complexity of the process.

At the Law Office of Kimberly Humphrey, LLC, we have recovered compensation for many injured workers in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. Whether you are suffering from a repetitive stress injury or recovering from a serious construction accident, our support can make navigating the claims process much easier.

Am I Eligible For Workers' Compensation?

A hip or knee injury caused by a slip-and-fall in an icy parking lot may not seem severe at first. However, such seemingly minor injuries can sometimes develop into a chronic condition that requires ongoing treatment. Our legal team can tell you if you have a valid claim, but it is important to file a workers' comp claim as soon as possible after your injury, no matter how minor it may appear to be.

You May Still Be Able To Claim After Receiving Treatment

You have two years from the date of injury to file a worker's comp claim. If you have been injured in an accident but didn't file a claim, you may still have the opportunity to secure the compensation you are entitled to. Even if you have received treatment for your injury, there may be other benefits to which you are legally entitled.

With our extensive knowledge of the system and our experience in negotiating with insurance companies, we can inform you of the available benefits and help you receive the maximum compensation possible. We work closely with doctors and independent assessors to speed up the process and ensure that your claim progresses efficiently.
