Kansas City Injury Lawyers Going The Extra Mile

Kansas City Workers Compensation Lawyer

When you go to work, the last thing you should have to worry about is getting injured. We know that you do everything you can to stay safe when you are on-the-job, but you cannot control the actions of the other people around you.

At Peddicord & Townsend LLC, we know that some industries are riskier than others, but every occupation poses risks to its workers. When you need a Kansas City work injury attorney, call us today so we can secure the compensation you deserve.

What Can Happen?

Work injuries should be taken seriously by employers. It does not matter whether you are employed in an industry with a high risk of worker injury or not, your employer should take steps to ensure you have a safe working environment and that you have all the equipment you need to do your job correctly.

However, we know that work injuries happen. The Bureau of Labor Statistics tells us that there were approximately 2.8 million work injuries reported in the latest full year of available data.

Today, we want to discuss some of the common ways in which people are injured at work, including injuries you may not have considered that can significantly impact a person’s ability to perform their duties.

  • Traumatic injuries – There are the most common injuries that people think about when they hear about work injuries and can include things like falls, getting caught in between objects, roadway accidents, tool mishaps, getting struck by an object, etc.
  • Repetitive stress injuries – The most common repetitive stress injury is carpal tunnel syndrome, but there are others that affect millions of workers. Any time someone has to repeat a task over and over again for long periods of time (months and even years), they can develop debilitating repetitive stress injuries that can affect their livelihood.
  • Mental health illnesses – These injuries are not thought of often but can affect people just as much as traumatic injuries. Many industries place significant mental stress on workers: public safety, healthcare, management, and more.

While most work injuries should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance, there are times when claims are denied or when an injured party is eligible for more compensation than they realize.

If you are here because you or a loved one were injured in a work accident and you do not think you are getting the compensation you deserve, please seek legal assistance immediately.
