Workers' Compensation Archives

A rejected workers' comp claim doesn't deny your right to appeal

If you are a member of the Kansas workforce, you are entitled to workers' compensation coverage. It is the responsibility of employers to obtain insurance coverage to provide financial relief for workplace injury victims -- regardless of whose fault it was. You may only file a lawsuit against your employer if your injury resulted from gross negligence by the company. However, the insurer does not authorize all claims, and if your claim is one that they decide to reject, you have the right to appeal.

How can root-cause analysis protect workers?

As an employee in Kansas, how many times have you or your colleagues had near misses in which you could have lost your lives if something had happened a moment sooner or later, or if you had taken one more step? Safety advisors believe business owners can eliminate many hazards in the workplace by studying these incidents. Root-cause analysis is the process of determining the origin of the near-miss incident and then including appropriate precautions in the company's safety protocols to prevent repetitions.

Injured at work? Get the care you need when you need it.

Are you one of the many Kansas residents who has suffered an injury while on the job? If you were at work when you were injured, you may be entitled to access workers' compensation benefits, which can cover the cost of treatment, provide income while you recover and even cover disability expenses (if applicable).
