Belton, MO Workers’ Compensation Attorney
People can go years without an on-the-job injury, and then suffer a serious injury. If you have been injured in Belton, MO on the job, and your injuries have resulted in time off from work and surgery or other treatment, then you should consider consulting and hiring an attorney to represent you on your workers’ compensation claim.
The workers’ compensation system is designed to take care of workers or employees while minimizing the disruption to their lives. However, this does not always work out as planned. Sometimes an employer will attempt to dissuade an employee from pursuing a workers’ compensation claim. This is improper and should be brought to the attention of your attorney.
Your attorney will be able to help you file a claim with the workers’ compensation division and explain to you what sort of damages you are entitled to collect on. Most employers know how this works and see it as a cost of doing business. Often, the matter is handled for the employer by its insurer. However, an employer may put the employee on light duty or some type of work that is allowed within the work restrictions provided by the work comp doctor.
So if you have been injured at work in Belton, Mo, consider calling Rocky Cannon, Attorney at Law, at 816-353-0009 to discuss your work place accident.
