Maximizing A Settlement

Knowledgeable Attorneys Who Are Committed to Protecting Your Rights

It is difficult to maximize a workers' comp settlement on your own.

By working with an experienced attorney, you can be certain that your best interests are protected.

Maximizing a Workers' Compensation Settlement: What Do I Need?

In both Kansas and Missouri, there is a two-pronged approach to correctly handling workers' compensation cases. The injured worker's medical condition must be resolved before monetary issues are considered. For this reason, it is imperative you work with a lawyer who is knowledgeable of the law and understands what needs to be done to maximize your claim.

Not only are our lawyers and legal staff knowledgeable of the tactics that the insurance company will use, we are familiar with calculating rates for benefits, what medical records are important and how different injuries are affected by the payment schedule.
