Workplace Discrimination

Construction Accidents

Accidents caused on construction sites due to negligence happen all too often. Construction workers must be aware of others and their surroundings at all times. In addition to the construction worker, the people responsible for the worker’s safety have an obligation to ensure all safety measures are in place, and that all safety ordinances are complied with properly and legally.

Farming Accidents

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, each year thousands of farm workers are injured and hundreds die in farming accidents. Farming machinery, pesticides, musculoskeletal injuries, and respiratory injuries all constitute as farming accidents and injuries. If you or a loved one has been injured in a farming accident, contact my office immediately.

Workers’ Compensation – Third-Party Claims

In the states of Kansas and Missouri, if you are injured at your place of work, most often you are covered under workers' compensation benefits. Despite this, there are situations that may entitle you to compensation in addition to your workers' compensation benefits, specifically if a third party is involved. If you are injured on the job, and it is determined that a third party was responsible for your injuries, you may be entitled to a claim for your personal injury. If you or a loved one has suffered a workplace injury, you should contact my office as quickly as possible so that I can begin a personal injury investigation. The earlier an investigation is started, the more beneficial it will be for you or your loved one.
